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.
