Anyone else notice our former catcher was the coach last night for Texas.

I was watching last night and actually looked him up when I saw him out for pitching changes.

I honestly had no clue he played for us, but didn't feel so bad when I saw it was only like 20 games or so...

He was called up to catch Charlie Hough in 1991 when Karkovice got hurt. Never played in the majors again once Karkovice came back.

I always thought Wakamatsu's name was strangely familiar. Now I remember why.

I brought him up in a thread last time we played Texas.
