NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1974 TERRY HUMPHREY

Today’s blog post has a “not so missing” 1974 card for former catcher Terry Humphrey, who appeared in 43 games for the Montreal Expos in what was the third year of his Big League career:


Humphrey batted .167, collecting 15 hits over 90 at-bats, scoring five runs while driving in nine with a homer and two doubles.
He’d play one more season in Montreal before heading to the Detroit Tigers for a year in 1975, appearing in only 18 games before moving on to the California Angels where he would play the final four years of his nine-year career.
Never a full-time layer, he did appear in 123 games for California in 1977, hitting .227 with a career-high 69 hits in 304 at-bats, driving in 34 runs while scoring 17.
All told, he finished his career with a .211 batting average, with 223 hits in 1055 at-bats, appearing in 415 games between 1971 and 1979, with 39 doubles, a triple, and six homers.

  1. If this photo was taken during spring of 1974, That's Don Carrithers standing in the background. No listed #40 in 1973.

    1. Looking at the guy's build, it could be coach Dave Bristol, who coached with the Expos in '73

    2. According to my number source (the book Now Batting, Number...) Bristol wore the number 1 that season. I do agree with you however, that does have the look and posture of a coach.
