Chan Ho and David

 Chan Ho Park surprised me, I didn't realize he was still pitching in the majors.  He is one of only 5 pitchers to have started a game against all 30 major league teams.  He was the first South Korean born pitcher to play in MLB when he played for the Dodgers.  He suffered from unknown intestinal bleeding during his time with the Padres, which limited his availability.  He was ultimately diagnosed with a congential defect and repaired.  He has continued to pitch, working for the Yankees and Pirates this year.  I got this Upper Deck team issue card signed through the mail.  David Wayne Pauley was recently featured over at autographedcards by Zach.  I will let him tell the story, because it mirrors mine.  The cards were signed through the mail although at different times, you can see that David signed with two different sharpies.
