Lenny was a firebrand. After his playing days in the US were over, he went to Italy and became the biggest star in their professional baseball league. He did a tour of duty in the Senior League. And in 1994 he wanted to try his hand in the big leagues again during the strike as a replacement player at the age of 45! That didn't happen, but it wasn't for lack of desire. He's shown here on his 1982 Donruss card. Seven more Lenny Randle pieces are shown below.
