#392 - 1984 United States Baseball Team: Don August
What a card: Finally, we have a player from the 1984 U.S. Baseball Team that reached the major leagues. Don August played for the Brewers from 1988-91.
My observation on the front: You can see the team sponsor General Electric on the patch on August's sleeve.
More opinion from me: A lot of "sitting in the dugout" shots in this subset.
Something you might know: August finished fourth in the A.L. Rookie of the Year voting in 1988 after going 13-7 in 24 games with a 3.09 ERA for the Brewers.
Something you might not know: August became a teacher after his playing career and is now the JV baseball coach at Menomonee Falls High School in Wisconsin.
My observation on the back: Chapman College became Chapman University in 1991. Other major leaguers from the school include a lot of Padres. Not only Randy Jones, but also Tim Flannery and Gary Lucas.
