    Wasn't Garcia double play partner with Tony Fernandez who just passed recently? Or am I confused?

    Yes, in 1985 and 1986.

    Fernandez was also on the Blue Jays in 1984, but was the backup SS behind Alfredo Griffin.

    I remember an article in one of the preseason mags I used to devour about Oliver working as a policeman in the offseason. Funny what sticks.

    Officer Down Memorial Page

    Police Officer Dan Walters
    San Diego Police Department, California

    End of Watch Thursday, April 23, 2020

    Here is what happened to Officer Walters:

    "Police Officer Dan Walters succumbed to complications of a gunshot wound sustained on November 12, 2003.

    He and his partner were backing up another officer on 43rd Street near Gamma Street after the officer stopped to investigate a vehicle parked in the travel lanes with a subject standing nearby. The man immediately pointed a gun at the officer, causing him to seek cover. Officer Walters and his partner immediately confronted the man, who attacked Officer Walters. The man placed his .357 handgun against Officer Walters' neck and shot him, causing him to fall into the roadway. The man was then shot Officer Walters' partner.

    A passing vehicle inadvertently struck Officer Walters, causing additional injuries. He was transported to a local hospital where it was determined that he had become paralyzed from the neck down.

    It was later determined that the man who shot Officer Walters was involved in a violent domestic incident when the first officer encountered him.

    Officer Walters remained paralyzed and died from complications from the original injuries on April 23, 2020.

    Officer Walters had served with the San Diego Police Department for five years at the time he was shot.

    Before serving with the San Diego Police Department, Officer Walters was drafted by the Houston Astros and then played two seasons of Major League Baseball with the San Diego Padres."

    Paralyzed 17 years.

    WOW!

    In 1958 Dalkowski was invited to the Orioles' camp in Miami. One
    day that spring Ted Williams was lurking around the batting cage
    and decided to see this Dalkowski kid for himself. The Splendid
    Splinter stepped into the batter's box, watched one pitch fly by
    and stepped out of the cage, muttering to reporters that he'd be
    damned if he would face Dalkowski until he had to. Williams told
    Dalkowski he hadn't even seen the ball--he'd just heard the pop
    of the catcher's glove.
    In an exhibition game that spring against
    the Cincinnati Reds in Baltimore's Memorial Stadium, with his
    parents watching, Dalkowski fanned the side in the ninth on just
    12 pitches. He would never again pitch in a big league ballpark.
    * Attended the 1990 and 2010 Reds Division clinchers *

    Listened to the 1995 Div. Clincher on WLW - Watched the 2012 Div. Clincher on FOX.
    [B]Watched the 2013 Playoff Clincher on FSO
    *Watched 2020 playoff clincher on FSO*
