Willie Gets Clocked!

That's one heck of a left jab from Atlanta Braves pitcher Larry Jaster. Willie Davis takes it on the chin after storming the mound, via eBay. The scuffle occurred during the 8th inning on April 19, 1970 during a game in which the Dodgers pounded the Braves 10-1. Fortunately, Willie wasn't the only one who left with a black eye.

Isotopes Restovich Card

Here is card number 2 from the Albuquerque Isotopes 2010 Autograph Session series of Michael Restovich.

Restovich, for the most part, has been a career minor leaguer. He was drafted in 1997 by the Twins and bounced around the minors with many different organizations. He has had several stints in the Majors as well, but has yet to come up with the Dodgers.
