1988 Spokane Indians at the Mall - Chris Haslock

Chris Haslock pitched in the Padres organization from 1988 to 1991. In 172 games, almost all in relief, he went 17-14 with 26 saves and a 3.44 ERA. A fuller account of his career can be found at The Greatest 21 Days.

The first Thom McAn shoe store (named after a famous Scottish golfer) opened its first store in 1922 in New York and had over 850 locations by the 1950s.  As casual footwear trends changed the store failed to keep up with the times and the last Thom McAn store closed in 1996. The brand is now owned by Sears and the shoes can still be found at Sears and K-Mart. Thom McAn put out a baseball card set in 1985 - MSA JOX Thom McAn Discs. Although the stores have been gone for over twenty years old Thom McAn signs are still visible all over the country.
