Card of the Day: 1/27/16

1981 Topps #523 John Fulgham

     John Thomas Fulgham was born in St. Louis, Missouri on June 9, 1956. He spent two seasons with the Cardinals, but his promising career abruptly ended after Fulgham injured his rotator cuff.

     John was signed by the Cardinals in the first round of the 1976 secondary free-agent draft. He made his debut for the team on June 19, 1979. While with the team he won fourteen games in thirty-three starts. He posted a 2.84 career ERA over the 1979 and 1980 seasons. The most impressive stat may be that all fourteen of John's wins were also complete games. It's a shame that injury ended his career and didn't allow him to reach his full potential as a big league pitcher.
