Pettis was selected in the 6th round of the 1979 draft by the Angels and spent eleven years in the major leagues. He consistently hit for low averages and was known for striking out often, but he performed extremely well on defense, earning five Gold Glove Awardss.

Gary had his younger brother sit in for his picture on his 1985 Topps baseball card.
