NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1975 IKE BROWN

Here’s a “not really missing” card for Ike Brown, who finished up a six-year Major League career in 1974 with the briefest of action:


Brown’s 1974 season totaled two games, with two plate appearances, in which he went hitless while playing third base.
It would close out a resume that encompassed 1969 through 1974, with a career .256 batting average with 137 hits in 536 at-bats over 280 games.
Never a full-time player, he spent all six years with the Detroit Tigers, seeing the most action during his rookie year of ‘69 when he appeared in 70 games and had 205 plate appearances, batting .229 with a career-high 24 runs scored.
