Shane Mack

Shane Lee Mack played for 4 seasons at AAA Las Vegas from 1986 to 1989.  I would buy a front row seat at Civic Stadium on the third base side, next to the visiting dugout.  In those days at Civic it was really easy to talk to the players and interact with the them.  I got Shane to sign this and many cards during the games.  Shane played in the Padres organization through 1989 when he was chosen by the Twins in the Rule 5 draft.  Shane was part of the Twins' World Series Champions in 1991.  He played 3 years in Japan and then returned to the States and finished his career with the Red Sox, A's and Royals.  Shane was also part of the silver medal team for the USA at the 1984 Olympics.
