Young Superstars II #27 - Oddibe McDowell

The highlights second on the back mentions his stolen base percentage. Interesting because due to their vertical orientation, Score had to sacrifice a few stat categories that horizontally set cards usually include. One of those categories sacrificed was stolen bases. So good for Score for at least telling us how many steal he had and how many times he was caught.

I'm not sure where this photo was taken, but the base release was taken in Oakland like so many other Rangers cards in the two Young Superstars series.

Oddibe was just an average player at the plate, but was above average with the glove.

He played for Texas, Cleveland and Atlanta over the course of six seasons. In 1994 he attempted a comeback with Texas and batted .262/1/15 in 183 at bats.
