MISSING IN ACTION- 1974 JOHN KENNEDY

After appearing in 67 games for the Boston Red Sox in 1973 I think John Kennedy deserves a “missing” card in the 1974 set, so here it is:


Kennedy hit .181 in those 67 games based on his 28 hits in 155 at-bats while splitting time between both second and third base.
He put together a 12-year career in the Majors, coming up with the Washington Senators in 1962 before moving on to the Los Angeles Dodgers and their World Champion team in 1965.
He would go on to play for the New York Yankees, Seattle Pilots/Milwaukee Brewers and Red Sox before his career was over after the 1974 season, leaving behind a .225 batting average with 475 hits over 2110 at-bats in 856 lifetime games.
