MISSING IN ACTION- 1976 PROJECT- JOHN DOHERTY

It’s been a long while but it’s time to add to the long-running “1976 Project” for “Reader Jim”, this time with a card for someone who fashioned a brief two-year career and even had a card in the 1975 Topps set, former California Angels player John Doherty:


After playing in 74 games during his rookie year of 1974, Doherty came back in 1975 appeared in 30 more, hitting .202 with 19 hits over 94 at-bats.
Sadly for him that would be it for his Major League career, ending with a .240 batting average with 76 hits in 317 at-bats and 104 games, all for the Angels.
There are a few more players added to the “1976 Project” recently, so keep an eye out for them in the coming weeks.
