#357) BOB McCLURE
Bob McClure signed with the New York as a free agent on July 13, 1988. This was only shortly after Bob had been released by the Montreal Expos for whom he had pitched the previous two seasons. The move reunited him with former teammate Keith Hernandez. Both had played for the College of San Mateo and even went as far back as Little League baseball in California during their youth. McClure appeared in 14 games for New York while battling several injuries. Only recording one save during that time. He was released by the Mets on October 27, 1988.
Bob McClure signed his card in the set for my friend Sam when the Kansas City Royals played the Baltimore Orioles on July 30, 2009. He is currently the pitching coach for the Royals.
