NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1975 REX HUDSON

Here’s an example of exactly WHY I started the “Not Really Missing” thread, a card for a guy who made one single appearance as a Major League player, and I get to create a card for him all these years later.
The player is former Los Angeles Dodger pitcher Rex Hudson:


The extent of Hudson’s big league experience is one game, two innings, and a whopping 22.50 earned run average with two homers allowed, one of them being a Hank Aaron blast.
He faced 12 batters in his Major League debut, allowing five runs, all earned, on six hits in those two innings, and would never taste the big time again.
He’d last another three seasons in the Dodgers minor league system, and would leave the game for good in 1977 after an 8-14 showing for Albuquerque in Triple-A.
