Steve Dunn 1990 Palm Springs Angels card
Steve Dunn picked up the win for Chapman College in this March 1987 game.

Dunn went six innings and gave up one run on three hits as his team went on to win by a score of 8-3, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Dunn went on to turn pro later that year. His pro career turned out to be brief. He saw time in just three seasons. He never saw AA.

Dunn's career started that year in 1987, signed by the Angels as an undrafted free agent out of Chapman.

Dunn played for the amateur Valley Dodgers team in early June 1987. He went 3-2 with the team before signing with the Angels.

With the Angels, Dunn played at short-season Salem. He got into 12 games there, starting nine. He helped preserve a Salem win in a July game.

He moved to single-A Quad City in 1988. He got into 33 games there, starting 19. He had an ERA of 3.66.

Dunn isn't credited as playing at all in 1989. He then returned for 1990 at high-A Palm Springs. He got 28 outings there, seven starts. He had a 5.28 ERA. It was his final season as a pro.
