Random autograph of the day: Dana Allison

Dana Allison was drafted by the Oakland Athletics in 1989 and moved up in their system quickly. The relief pitcher had a 1.52 ERA in his first pro season, spent at Single A, then posted a 2.33 ERA in 47 games between three stops, including Triple A, in his second campaign, 1990.

By April 1991, he was in the major leagues, but whatever magic he had was lost—in 11 big league games that year, he had a 7.36 ERA, then at Triple A, his mark was 4.37. He bounced around the Athletics system until 1994, finding use as a starter and reliever, but never returned to the majors.
