Ed Landphere helped college to win, saw 18 pro games

Ed Landphere 1990 Salinas Spurs card
Ed Landphere's University of California-Santa Barbara Gauchos were on their way to a 7-6 victory over Fullerton in this March 1988 contest and helping them get there was Landphere.

In the seventh inning, Landphere smacked a double, knocking in a run, according to The Los Angeles Times.

That RBI was one of 54 he recorded on the year for UCSB that year. As a pro, Landphere would only knock in six. Landphere's professional career lasted all of 18 games.

Landphere's brief pro career began in 1990, signed by the independent Salinas Spurs as a free agent out of UC-Santa Barbara.

Landphere's time at UC-Santa Barbara in 1988 ultimately earned him first-team All-Big West.

Landphere's pro career then started in 1990. With the Salinas Spurs, Landphere got into those 18 games, 58 at bats. Landphere picked up a total of 10 hits, with one home run. He also struck out 19 times. It was his only time as a pro.
