Paul and Al

Paul Michael McAnulty was a player that was a fan favorite here in Portland.  He was drafted by the Padres in 2002 and caught the eye of Kevin Towers when he hit .344 for the Beavers in 2005.  He made his major league debut in June of 2005 and played at least of each season through 2008, in 2009 he played at Colorado Springs and Pawtucket.  This year he is playing at Salt Lake City in the Angels organization.  I got this signed along with a few others through the mail.  Alvin O'Neal McBean  played for the Pirates from 1961-1968 before being drafted by the Padres in the expansion draft.  He pitched 1 game for the Padres before being traded to the Dodgers, he played part of 1969 and 1970 with the Dodgers before finishing his career with the Pirates in 1970.  I bought the card off of eBay.
