Inky played his first season in Houston in 1992, just a couple years after playing for that other Texas ball club to the north. In '98 he came back to the Astros to finish out his major league career. He also played with the Tigers, Orioles, Phillies and Yankees. Pete also played a year in Japan, between a stint with the Phillies.
After retiring from the majors as a player Pete was on the coaching staff for Detroit's AA team. After doing that for a few years he became the head coach for the Grand Prairie AirHogs. I sent these two cards to Inky care of this independant team from the American Association on 5/1/09 and received them back on 5/30/09.
