Julius and Bill
Julius Matos played professional baseball from 1994 to 2006 but only played in 104 major league games in two seasons. He was drafted by the Indians in '94 and made his major league debut with the Padres in 2002. After the season he was granted free agency and signed with the Royals, where he played in 2003. He was again granted free agency and bounced from organization to organization for the next three years. I got the card off of eBay. William John McCool pitched for the Reds for 5 years before being chosen by the Padres in the expansion draft. He only pitched part of one season for the Padres before being traded to the Cardinals, where he finished out his career in 1970. I got the card from a dealer on eBay.
