4 before the namesake of my son

Glenelg Edward Dishman was signed by the Padres as an undrafted free agent in 1993. He worked his way up through the Padres system, even pitching a no hitter in the minors. He made his major league debut in 1995, pitching parts of 1995 and 1996 for the Padres. He pitched for Phillies in '96 and for Detroit in '97. He is currently the pitching coach for the Chattanooga Lookouts. I got the card off of Ebay a few years ago. James Joseph Deshaies was drafted by the Yankees and in his major league debut as the 1,000 player for the Yankees. He made his major league debut in 1984 , he played for the Yankees, Astros, and A's before he played in 15 games for the Padres in 1992. This is the only card I have ever found of Desahies as a Padre. I got this signed through the mail. Deshaies is currently an analyst on Astros' broadcasts. Patrick Edward Dobson, Jr. was one of four pitchers to win 20 games for the Orioles in 1971, the season after he played for the Padres and won 14 games. He played for the Tigers, Orioles, Yankees and Indians. He died of Leukemia in 2006. I got this card off of Ebay. Todd William Donovan has never played in the major leagues, he was drafted by the Padres in 1999 and this year is playing in the Blue Jays organization. I got this signed through the mail.

Anyone want to guess who my son is named for?
