Tim Leary

Leary: Ok, Ladies, which of you will be lucky enough to go home with Tim Leary tonight?
Ladies: Who the f*ck is Tim Leary?

Ladies: Niiiiccee.

Worked every time.

Topps Fact: He collected 1st major league Hit: 9-12-83.

Donruss Fact: Ranked 3rd on the Braves in wins and 2nd in strikeouts last year.
