Today I present to you a “not so missing” 1975 card for Hugh Yancy of the Chicago White Sox, who played in three different seasons yet for never more than three games in any one of them:
Yancy first got a taste of the big leagues in 1972 when he appeared in
three games for Chicago, before spending the entire 1973 season in the
In 1974 he made it back to the big leagues, but for one single game with
one plate appearance, a sacrifice for the “unofficial” at-bat.
His last taste of the Majors would be in 1976 when he appeared in
another three games, collecting one hit in 10 at-bats to close out a
career that was summed up by two hits over 19 at-bats in seven games.
He would toil in the Minors through the 1979 season for both the
Cincinnati and Cleveland organizations, but sadly for him never again
play in the Major Leagues.
