Be Home Blyleven

Bert Blyleven - "Be Home Blyleven" - 9" x 12" Acrylic on paper
Won 287 games in 22 seasons. Elected to HOF in 2011. But he makes this list as my favorite #28 not because of his Hall of Fame career but because of the nickname given to him by Chris Berman. Bert "Be Home" Blyleven - a line from an old Richard Pryor comedy routine. Honorable Mentions go to Pedro Guerrero and Bobby Tolan. Notable Braves to wear 28 - Gerald Perry and Mike Lum. On to the number #27 - a really tough choice for me. I have not decided - what is your pick?
