MISSING IN ACTION- "IN ACTION" #55: RAY FOSSE

I think blog reader Joe mentioned that I should create a “missing” 1972 “in-action” card for former all-star catcher Ray Fosse, so here goes:


Fosse was coming off of two straight all-star campaigns in 1970 and 1971 with the Cleveland Indians.
Of course we’ll always remember his meeting at the plate with a steamrolling Pete Rose, resulting in an injured shoulder for Fosse that some say curtailed his promise the rest of his career.
Nevertheless, Fosse put together a very nice 12-year career that included two Gold Gloves to go with the all-star nods, as well as two championships while with the Oakland A’s in 1973 and 1974.

  1. Oh, so cool. He deserved an IN ACTION card, anyway, seeing how he was the starting catcher in the 1971 All-Star Game.
