1989 Scranton Wilkes Barre Red Barons (ProCards)

In 1989 the Scranton Wilkes Barre Red Barons were the Phillies AAA team. In 2013, the Scranton Wilkes Barre Rail Riders are the Yankees AAA team.

I was going to make a joke about Kevin Bootay, but Scott Crawford beat me to it. I will just note that he played over 500 games in the major leagues. For the last fourteen years he has been a scout, currently with the Chicago White Sox organization.
There was a John Martin who pitched in the major leagues for the Cardinals in the 1980s. This isn't him, but this John Martin did pitch in the Cardinals organization at the same time as the other John Martin, though they were never teammates.
