Bobby Clark was originally drafted by the Houston Astros in the 14th round of the 1973 MLB Draft. He did not sign and was selected by the California Angels in the 5th round of the 1975 amateur draft. He signed with the Angels and worked his way up the club's minor league affiliates. He had a strong season in 1978 for the AA El Paso Diablos, hitting 31 home runs and knocking in 111 runs while batting .316 in 129 games. Clark made his big league debut with the Angels in 1979. He spent five seasons with the Angels but never moved past being more than a platoon player with the club. After the 1983 season, the Angels dealt Clark to the Milwaukee Brewers for pitcher Jim Slaton. Clark spent two seasons as a reserve with the Brewers and played his last big league game in 1986. He spent two seasons in AAA in 1987 and 1988 to close out his career. Over seven seasons in the majors, Clark batted .239 with 19 homers and 100 RBI in 1,038 at-bats in 396 games. Clark wore this Wilson size 42 jersey during the 1982 season with the Angels when he appeared in 102 games while hitting .211 with 2 home runs and 8 RBIs. While not normally a high strikeout hitter in his career, Clark was set down on pitches 29 times in 90 at-bats that year without a walk.
