Today I serve up yet another ?missing” New York Mets player. This time it’s former pitcher Phil Hennigan on a 1974 edition:
Hennigan actually pitched the last of his Major League games in 1973 for
the National League champs, appearing in 30 games on the mound, going
0-4 with a 6.23 earned run average.
He pitched 43.1 innings, purely in relief and posted three saves along
the way, with 22 K’s to close out a five-year career that saw him play
for the Cleveland Indians between 1969-1972, the that final season over
at Shea Stadium in 1973.
He finished with a 17-14 record, with a 4.26 ERA and 188 strikeouts over 280 innings and 176 games, all but two out of the ‘pen.
