MISSING IN ACTION- 1979 HENRY CRUZ

Here’s a “missing” 1979 card for former outfielder Henry Cruz, who squeezed in four Major League seasons in the mid-70’s:


Cruz played in 53 games for the White Sox in what would be his final year in the big leagues, hitting .221 with 17 hits over 77 at-bats with a couple of homers and ten runs batted in.
It would cap off a career that had him with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1975 and 1976, then onto the Pale Hose for the final two seasons in 1977 and 1978.
All together he hit .229, collecting 64 hits over 280 at-bats in 171 games, with 32 runs scored and 34 RBI’s.
He’d go on to play in the Mexican League all the way into the 1985 season, making it 14 years in pro ball before hanging them up.

  1. You need to do a "brothers" card with Hector, Jose and Tommy Cruz. There was also a Victor Cruz (no relation) that played in the 70's and early 80's.
