1986 Spokane Indians at the Mall - Greg Harris

Looks like a jewelry store. Mandell's operated several jewelry stores in the Spokane area for 65 years before closing in 2001 due to the retirement of its owner.

Greg Harris came up with the Padres in 1988 and was great in his first four seasons, going 27-22 with a 2.34 ERA in 152 games. Unfortunately, his career stalled at that point, due to injuries and subsequent malpractice (for which he later won $6 million in a court case). Overall in 243 games (109 starts) for the Padres, Rockies and Twins from 1988 to 1995, he went 45-64 with a 3.98 ERA. He is now a youth baseball coach for Rawlings Prospects NC.

  1. Hopefully he actually ended up seeing a good sized chunk of that $6 million.
