Happy birthday, Ed Vosberg

New, 25 comments

Happy birthday to Ed Vosberg, who turns 49 today.

Vosberg was a lefty reliever who was a key component of the Rangers' bullpen on their first playoff team, establishing himself as a legit major leaguer at the age of 33. 

He's primarily remember by Rangers fans for two things, however. 

First, he was arrested in 1995 outside of the Ballpark in Arlington for attempting to scalp his all star game tickets.  Only with the Rangers...

Secondly, he was part of one of the better trades the Rangers made in the 90s, being sent in 1997 to the Florida Marlins in exchange for Rick Helling, who ended up being a solid part of the Ranger rotation for the next several years.
