Randy Milligan was drafted in the first round of the 1981 amateur draft by the New York Mets. The three games played listed in the stats on the back are the only games he played as a Met.
His Major League debut came in the 7th inning of a 8-1 loss against the Cardinals at the old Busch Stadium on September 12, 1987. He went hitless in his one at bat pinch hitting for pitcher Bob Ojeda.
In that game, Doc Gooden lasted only two innings and Greg Mathews got the complete game victory.
He had a short career, but not a bad career. He knew how to take a walk and walked more than he struck out and his .391 on base percentage isn't too terrible (127 OPS). And in the field he was right at league average.
These days he's a scout in the Baltimore Orioles system.
