Lets in a bunch, Resch then re-inserted to finish the game in a 9-3 hammering. Believe Sammy then given a one-way bus ticket back to Maine & the Mariners. A team he'd spent many years with but for a few stints with the Toldedo Goaldiggers of the IHL. That summer (86) traded to Detroit. Won several awards as I mentioned earlier in the minors, and did actually perform well on call-ups at various times during his fairly lengthy career.
