My 'under the radar' blog featuring my baseball card collecting endeavors and hopefully some of my autographs collected in-person / through-the-mail.

2012 Hudson Valley Joey Rickard
I dug up the first professional card of the Rule 5 draft pick who made the Baltimore Orioles Opening Day roster as their starter in left field - I'm poring over Rickard's Baseball Reference page to see if I could figure out where he came from and what he might be capable of as a big leaguer.
He posted a .390 on-base percentage in parts of 4 minor league seasons and can run - so after a good spring training performance, perhaps he can stick around.
