Andy Van Slyke, 1991 Score

Name: Andy Van Slyke
Team: Pittsburgh Pirates
Position: Outfield
Value of card: 30 seconds of advertising on CBS
Key 1990 stat: One failed TV pilot
Plot summary for "Rifleman," a ripoff of NBC's hit "Quantum Leap": Theorizing that one could time travel within his own lifetime, Andy Van Slyke stepped into the "Rifleman" accelerator and vanished. He woke to find himself trapped in the past, facing mirror images that were not his own, and driven by an unknown force to change baseball history for the better. His only guide on this journey was Al Newman, an observer from his own time, who appeared in the form of a Photoshop cutout that only Andy could see and hear. And so Van Slyke found himself leaping from game to game, striving to put right what once was scored as an error, and hoping each time that his next leap would be the leap home.
