NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1976 MIKE POEPPING

Going back-to-back with one-year Major League ballplayers today after Glenn Redmon yesterday, with former Minnesota Twins’ outfielder Mike Poepping, who played 14 games in 1975, the sum total of his Big League career:


Poepping was another September call-up who hit .135 over that time with five hits in 37 at-bats, with a double and one run batted in.
The 24-year-old finally got his chance at the Big Show after spending eight years in the Minnesota system, coming up as a 17-year-old in 1968.
After another full-season in the Minors in 1976 he called it a career, finishing up with just those 14 games in 1975, which is more than I can say, so “cheers” to you Mike Poepping!
In my book a nine-year professional baseball career is definitely something to be proud of.

  1. Back-to-back hits like these two are always good to see. Why not try to break Joe DiMaggio's streak...with 57 "one-year" ML players ? Or, better, "one-game" players.

  2. Agreed, great looking card! I'm still getting over that awesome Lowell Palmer card from last week.
