We can get down with Bad Spring Training Twitpics.

Obscure Baseball Player Card #5 - Don Robinson
Zack from Fat Shawn Kemp with this week’s edition of my obscure MLB player card. This weeks featured player, Don Robinson, is a little more successful and maybe not as obscure as some earlier posts, but I wanted to feature a player from a playoff team.
Don Robinson was a right-handed pitcher who played for the Pittsburgh Pirates, San Francisco Giants, California Angels and Philadelphia Phillies during his career. According to Wikipedia, he was nicknamed “The Caveman”. He was regarded as one of the best hitting pitchers of his time, winning three Silver Slugger Awards in 1982, 1989, and 1990. He hit 13 home runs in his career. According to the back of this card, he won Game 2 of the 1979 World Series for the Pirates, defeating the Orioles.
An interesting piece of trivia: Mike Schmidt hit his 500th home run off of Robinson on April 18, 1987.
