This picture of me and Dave Parker was taken by my father in the Pirates dugout at Busch Stadium in St. Louis on Spetember 8, 1983.
David Gene Parker, aka "The Cobra" played Major League Baseball from 1973-1991. The two-time National League batting champion has a very special place in my heart and mind and began my dreams for a career related to baseball in 1983. For the full story on my special relationship with Parker, read a paper I wrote about it for an undergraduate class, Me and Dave Parker.
Take a journey through Dave Parker's Major League career with stops in Pittsburgh, Cincinnai, Oakland, Milwaukee, Anaheim and Toronto as a player and in Anaheim, St. Louis and Pittsburgh as a coach.
