The Catchers' 3

Fred Lyn Kendall played 10 years in the majors, and 8 of them for the Padres.  He was drafted by the Reds in 1967 and then the Padres drafted him in the expansion draft.  He was traded in 1976 to the Indians, where he played for a year, before being traded to the Red Sox.  After one year in Boston he was released and resigned with the Padres for his final two major league seasons.  Mr. Kendall signed through the mail.  Terrance Edward Kennedy played longer with the Padres than I thought, I always have thought on him as an Oriole, put that was only two seasons and after he played 6 seasons with the Padres.  Maybe I can get him to sign some cards later today at the Beavers game.  William G. Killian was drafted by the Padres in the 3rd round of the 2004 draft.  He was traded to the Rangers with Adam Eaton for Adrian Gonzalez, Chris Young and Termel Sledge.  He has only played in the minors since then with the ChiSox and last year at Frederick for the Orioles.  I got the card off of eBay, I have sent multiple cards to Billy with no response.
