New Arrival: Billy jo Robidoux, if, Brewers

Billy jo Robidoux.jpg

Billy jo Robidoux was a 6th Round pick of the Brewers back in 1982, and would make his pro debut three seasons later.  He would spend parts of six seasons in the majors, and retire with a career .209 AVG and 65 OPS+.  But the reason I wanted to add his autograph to my collection was due to some of his great minor league seasons. His 1985 with AA El Paso (.342 AVG, 1.020 OPS with 23 HR) and 1988 with AAA Denver (.292 AVG, .392 OBP and .884 OPS) were some of my favorite. He would retire with some impressive minor league totals: .308 AVG, .412 OBP and .903 OPS, with 73 HR and more walks (403) then K (360).  He is a great example that you can still have a great career in the game, even if your numbers in the majors don’t show it.
