Don Slaught answers my baseball card questions

Don Slaught played sixteen years in the major leagues, mostly for the Royals, Rangers, Yankees and Pirates, catching over a thousand major league games. He is now the President of RightView Pro, a baseball instruction technology company that is the only analysis system licensed to use video of Major League Baseball players. He kindly replied to my questions about baseball cards.

- Do you have any stories about cards of yourself or of other players?
I was listed as a pitcher one time.

- Do you have a favorite card of yourself or of another player?
The 3D card from Texas Rangers.

- Do you collect baseball cards?


I had to include a Yankee card of Slaught, so here he is making his Yankee debut on April 9, 1988, going 2-3 with an RBI in the Yankees 4-1 win at Milwaukee.

  1. That is hilarious -- he's listed as a pitcher while wearing a catcher's mitt!
