NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1970 DANNY LAZAR

Here’s a 1970 card that wasn’t really “missing” for former White Sox pitcher Danny Lazar, who finished up a brief two-year Major League career in 1969 with nine appearances:


Lazar originally came up during the 1968 season for the Sox, appearing in eight games and posting a record of 0-1 with a 4.05 earned run average in his first taste of the big leagues.
The following season, he appeared in the aforementioned nine games, not factoring in a decision with a bloated 6.53 E.R.A. over 20.2 innings of work.
He’d spend the 1970 season in the minor leagues, pitching for Chicago’s Triple-A affiliate Tucson Toros before calling it a career.
He would spend his whole pro career, spanning 1965 through 1970, with the White Sox system.

  1. I thought his name seemed familiar, he had a rookie card in '69
