NOT SO MISSING IN ACTION- 1972 JIM WILLOUGHBY

Up on the blog today I have a 1972 “not so missing” card for former San Francisco Giant pitcher Jim Willoughby, who made his Major League debut in 1971 with two scant games:


The 22-year-old went 0-1 over those two games, pitching four innings to a 9.00 earned run average, with one of those appearances being a start.
He’d go on to play eight years in the Big Leagues, finishing up with a career 26-36 record, with an ERA of 3.79 over 238 appearances, 28 of those starts, with a shutout and 34 saves thrown in.
His best season could arguably be 1972 when he appeared in eleven games, all starts, and completed seven games, going 6-4 with an ERA of 2.36 over 87.2 innings pitched.

  1. Looks similar to his '73 card. Had a nice action shot in '74.
