NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1979 CHARLIE BEAMON

Here’s a “not really” missing 1979 card for former Seattle Mariner DH/1B Charlie Beamon, who played the first 10 games of his Major League career in 1978:


Beamon came up in September of the ‘78 season, going 2-for-11 with a couple of runs scored in his first taste of the big show.
He would come back the following season, playing in 27 games and batting an even .200 with five hits over 25 at-bats, but would stay in the minors the following year before coming up for his last bit in the Majors in 1980, this time for the Toronto Blue Jays, collecting three hits over 15 at-bats.
In total, his brief MLB career consisted of 10 hits over 51 at-bats, good for a .196 batting average over 45 games.
