Cam Vieaux's path to the majors with the Pittsburgh Pirates led to him eventually wearing #68 in black and gold. Selected by the Pirates in the sixth round of the 2016 MLB draft, Vieaux signed with the team, embarking on his professional baseball career with a reported $175,000 signing bonus.

Throughout his time in the Pirates' farm system, Vieaux honed his skills and demonstrated his commitment to the game. However, when the 2020 minor league season was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Vieaux (like many) faced an unexpected turn in his career.

His journey with the Pirates culminated in a notable performance, albeit a challenging one, characterized by an historically bad inning. He would be promoted in July of the 2022 season. Wearing #68, he took the mound and proceeded to give up eight runs, with seven being earned, in just one inning of work.

Most recently Vieaux found himself in the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim's organization. He spent the 2023 season with their Triple-A affiliate. While the lefty wore #68 for the Pirates, he will be known more for that inning on that July day.
