Gary and Jerry

 Gary Douglass Ross pitched for 10 seasons in the major leagues.  He was drafted by the Cubs in 1967 and pitched for them in '68.  He was traded to the Padres with Frankie Libran and Joe Niekro for Dick Selma.  He then stayed in San Diego for the next six years, before being traded to the Angels.  He pitched for the Angels for three years.  I got this signed through the mail.  Jeron Kennis Royster played third base for the Padres in '85-'86, he played for the Braves (10 years), Dodgers, White Sox and Yankees.  He managed the Brewers for part of 2002, then from 2008-2010 he managed the Lotte Giants in South Korea, becoming the first non Korean to manage in the league.  I got this signed through the mail back in 1987 or '88.
