A Decade between their Debuts.
Gregory Mark LaRocca played three seasons in the majors after being drafted by the Padres. He played in 2000 for San Diego and '02 and '03 for the Indians and since then he has played for three teams in Japan. I got this signed through the mail. Mathew A. Latos drafted by the Padres in 2006 and made his major league debut in 2009 and is part of the starting rotation for the Padres this year. I just noticed that Topps got Mats' name wrong on his Bowman Chrome card. I got Mat to sign this through the mail, I have since found out that Mat is a good artist so I sent him a sketch card to draw on.
