The Reynolds Brothers

Donald Edward Reynolds was drafted out of the University of Oregon in 1975, so we both left Eugene for San Diego at about the same time.  Don worked his way up to the majors in 1978 and 1979.  He played 87 games for the Padres in those two years, he played in the organization until 1981.  I got this signed through the mail, although Don only lives about a mile from where I work.   Harold Craig Reynolds is seven years younger than his brother, Don.  Harold graduated from high school in Corvallis, Oregon in 1979 and was drafted by the Padres, but elected not to sign.  He was then drafted by the Mariners and spent 10 seasons playing for Seattle, he then signed as a free agent with the Orioles for a year.  He then signed a free agent contract with the Padres and stopped by just long to have his picture taken before being traded to the Angels for Hilly Hathaway (WHO?).  Harold is now a commentator for MLB network, one of at least two Oregon High School players.  I got this somehow, I know I bought a bunch and sent them out,

I learned two thing from this post. I didn't know that these two were brothers and I didn't know Hilly was ever a Padre.
