NOT QUITE MISSING IN ACTION- 1973 MIKE ADAMS

Here’s a 1973 card for a guy who appeared in only three games for the Minnesota Twins during the 1972 campaign, Mike Adams:


Adams went two-for-six in the first three games of his five year Major League career, all while playing left field.
He’d get some more playing time the following year in 1973, playing in 55 games while batting .212 with 14 hits over 66 at-bats, along with the only three home runs he’d hit in the big leagues.
He wouldn’t see any action in 1974 or 1975, but would come back in 1976 with the Chicago Cubs, for whom he’d play through 1977, albeit sparingly (a total of 27 games between the two seasons).
In 1978 he would play the last games of his career, 15 with the Oakland A’s, ending up with exactly 100 games played with a .195 batting average based on 23 hits in 118 official at-bats, along with 27 runs scored.

  1. Hey - if you ever find a color image of Adams with the A's from '78, pass it along. He's one of the tougher '78 images to find.
