April 22, 2001 in a true testament to the fact that the american league ought to be disbanded, this guy, who was a terrible middle reliever, started some games last year for baltimore. and I think hes starting again this year, although I dont know if he's still with the orioles.
April 5, 2002 Everyone remembers when Rick Reed played in the outfield in the 1999 season against the Braves. So didChuck McElroy. I think it was a game against the Dodgers that Chuck went out there in the late innings. For some reason, I recall him making a pretty good shoestring catch.
January 25, 2003 I was playing stickball when I turned on the FAN just as McElroy was in the process of making his shoestring catch from left field. I couldn't understand why McElroy was ranging so far to make a catch until they said he was the outfielder, with Matt Franco on the mound.
McElroy seemed to let in a lot of inherited runners, though his ERA wasn't bad.

May 5, 2003 He actually had a good season with the Cubs in 1991, but after that he just couldn't do it anymore. I have a baseball card from 1992 of him, where he is wearing huge glasses and looks like he's honestly 50 years old.
