1982 Donruss #246 Lary Sorensen
Lary Alan Sorensen was born in Detroit, Michigan on October 4, 1955. The Cardinals acquired Sorensen on December 12, 1980 when the Milwaukee Brewers dealt him along with Sixto Lezcano and David Green for Pete Vuckovich, Ted Simmons, and Rollie Fingers. Although a seemingly lop-sided trade in favor of the Brewers, the Cardinals traded Sorensen after the 1981 season for Lonnie Smith who became a key player in the Cardinals' 1982 World Series Championship run. Their opponents in the series? The Milwaukee Brewers.
During Sorensen's time in St. Louis, he was a mediocre, yet consistent pitcher. In 23 games started, he won 7, lost 7, posted a 3.27 ERA, and rung up 52 batters on strikes.
