I’m #38. I try harder.

I had a hard time finding a Cardinal with #38.  Jose Cruz wore #38 for the Cards, but I couldn’t find a pic of him that showed it. So here is John Urrea who I was not familiar with. He pitched for the Cards from 1977 – 1980. His full name is John Goody Urrea. Baseball Almanac doesn’t have much to say about him, but I love the entry on him in Cardboard Gods
