Card of the Day: 12/29/15

1957 Topps #359 Tom Cheney

     Cheney pitched eight seasons in the Major Leagues. His two seasons (1956 and 1958) with the Cardinals were unspectacular. We did uncover an interesting statistic achieved by Tom. In 1961, he appeared in one game for the Pirates before being traded to the Senators. In that game, Tom gave up four runs while recording no outs, giving him an ERA of infinity while with the Pirates in 1961. Perhaps Tom was the real-life inspiration for Buzz Lightyear.
