NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1974 BUDDY HUNTER

The next player featured with a “not so missing” card is former Boston Red Sox infielder Buddy Hunter, who appeared in thirteen games during the 1973 season, giving way to the 1974 card I present here:


Hunter hit a very nice .429 based on his three hits over seven at-bats, along with three runs, two runs batted in and three walks.
That would be the most time he’d see during his short three-year career, appearing in nine other games between the 1971 and 1975 seasons.
All told he’d play in 22 games, batting .294 with five hits over 17 at-bats while playing second and third bases, along with some DH time.

  1. Rather weird that someone could play more games at DH than at any position, yet average fewer than 1 plate appearance per game. Probably did some pinch running, I guess.

    His name sounds like some sort of low-pressure dating site. B^}

  3. He probably had to borrow someone's glove for that photo. ;-)
