1977 Topps Baseball #33 - Dave Lemanczyk

  • Dave Lemanczyk had a big reversal of fortune in 1978. After winning 13 games for the expansion Toronto Blue Jays in 1977, Lemanczyk won only four games in 1978 and had his ERA jump by two runs.  
  • Dave was the opening day starter for the Blue Jays on April 5, but he started out 0-7 with an 8.62 ERA in his first seven starts.
  • Lemanczyk missed a start due to a twisted ankle on August 10. He made his next start on August 15 and then didn't pitch for three weeks (perhaps a stint on the disabled list).
  • 1978 Stats: 4-14, 6.26 ERA in 29 games (20 starts)
