Don Slaught

Don Slaught made the team out of spring training in 1997.  He then played in 6 games before being released in May.  He played for six teams prior to the Padres and played 15 seasons in the majors before San Diego.  I remember him as mainly as a Pirate, I didn't know he played for Kansas City.  I got this signed through the mail.

For a few years in our fantasy baseball league it seemed the custom for everyone to draft all tha catchers once someone broke the ice...everyone waited for someone else to pick the first of a usuallt average to sorry lot of catchers. One of the catchers was Don Slaught. That would set off the "Don Slaught onslaught" of catcher-drafting.

I had no idea Don ever played for the Padres. I was a fan of his during his time with the Pirates though.
