Minor League Monday - Toby Harrah, 1987 ProCards.

The last card in the 1987 ProCards Oklahoma City Eighty-Niners team set features perhaps the most popular player in the set. Ironic that he isn't even a player at this point.

Toby Harrah was one of the most well-liked players in early Rangers history. He was also the last former Washington Senator to play in the Major Leagues. He retired as a player following the 1986 season.

In 1987 and 1988 Harrah would manage the Eighty-Niners. In 1992 he would turn in a stint as manager of the Texas Rangers before giving way to Bobby Valentine. Since then he has manged in the Mets system in 1995 and for the Rockies in 2000.
