Let’s go and give former catcher-first baseman Pete Koegel a final card for his three-year Major League career, a 1973 edition after appearing in 41 games for the Philadelphia Phillies during the 1972 season:
Koegel pretty much evenly split time playing catcher, third base and
outfield for the Phillies, with pinch-hitting duties as well, hitting
.143 with seven hits over 49 official at-bats.
Originally up with the Milwaukee Brewers in 1970. He was traded over to
the city of Brotherly Love in April of 1971 as part of the Johnny Briggs
Those 1972 games would be the last he’d play on a Major League level,
but he would stick around, playing in the minors as well as in Mexico
through the 1977 season, wrapping up in the Kansas City Royals
organization before retiring for good as a player.
For his big league career, he finished with a .174 average with 15 hits
over 86 at-bats in 62 games split between the Brewers and Phillies, with
a single home run and five runs batted in along with three runs scored.
