1976 Topps - Clyde Wright.
The struggles continued with a poor 1975 campaign. By early 1976 the Rangers were doubting Clyde could get his game back. Texas released him on April 2, 1976. No other teams picked him up. At age 34 Clyde Wright's playing career was over.
Fortunately Wright had a three month old son at home to take his mind off getting released. Clyde could now spend his time passing on his pitching knowledge to young Jaret. In 1994 Jaret Wright would be drafted by the Cleveland Indians and begin his own professional baseball career.
