One and Done: Miguel Dilone

The Cubs had speedster Miguel Dilone for 43 games during the second half of the 1979 season.  That was enough for Topps to include him in the 1980 set.  He hit .306 and stole 15 bases in his short stint in Chicago.

He started the '80 season in AAA and then the Cubs sold him to the Indians in May.  In Cleveland he had a career year, hitting .341 and stole 61 bases.

Nice timing by the Cubs with this guy.
