MISSING IN ACTION- 1972 JIM BRITTON

Let's go and give former Expos pitcher Jim Britton a "Missing in Action" 1972 Topps card.
Take a look:


Britton played the last of his Major League games during the 1971 season up in Montreal, appearing in 16 games.
He posted a 2-3 record with a 5.72 earned run average over 45.2 innings of work, giving him a lifetime 13-16 record with a 4.02 ERA, three shutouts, four saves and 148 K's over 76 games and 237.1 innings between 1967 and 1971 (he missed the 1970 season after three years playing for the Atlanta Braves).

1 comment:

  1. He is a retired FBI agent. Alec Distaso, former Cub hurler in 1969, was a retired LAPD Detective. Jack Taschner (Giants, Pirates, Phils, Dodgers 2005-2010) may have been an Appleton, WI Police Officer. Rob Bowen (Twins, Padres, Cubs, A's) appears to be a K-9 Handler in GA.
