Rocky Coyle on baseball cards

Outfielder Rocky Coyle played six seasons of professional baseball, mostly in the A's and Blue Jays organizations. His best season was 1983, when he hit .381 with 16 HR, 59 RBI and 18 SB at Utica. Now a pastor, baseball instructor, and founder of 4Life Incorporated, which uses sports as a teaching tool for children and adolescents, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"My 1987 Syracuse card was wrong,they put my middle name first Joseph "Rocky"Coyle. My real name is Rock Joseph Coyle or Rocky. 
I liked my Knoxville card the best for the clear picture and Syracuse...I have the 1984 Modesto A's black and white that not many have the entire set of."
