1988 Topps Jeff Dedmon 46 - Braves Card of the Day ⚾

The Braves teams of the mid to late 1980s were full of really bad baseball players, but looking back, there were a few guys who weren’t bad at all. Dedmon took a few years to find his footing as a big league reliever, but he ended up as a solid member of the Braves bullpen turning in an excellent season in 1986 and a solid one in 1987. The Braves would deal him away after the 87 season and he wasn’t in organized ball but another year or two.

Of course, the Braves of this time period had problems that were far too large to be solved by a single solid reliever. Still, Dedmon performed relatively well.
