MISSING IN ACTION- 1973 JOE KEOUGH

Here’s a “Missing in Action” card for former Kansas City Royals outfielder Joe Keough, uncle of future Oakland A’s pitcher Matt Keough:


Keough appeared in 56 games for KC, batting .219 with 14 hits over 64 official at-bats while driving in five and scoring eight.
That would be the last substantial action he’d see in the Majors during his 6-year career as he would play in only five more games, all in 1975 with the Chicago White Sox, after playing for Oakland in 1968 and the Royals between 1969 and 1972.
For his career he hit .246 with 212 lifetime hits over 863 at-bats in 332 games while playing most of his games in the outfield along with some scattered games at first base.
