NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1973 BOB GEBHARD

On the blog today, we have a ‘not so missing” 1973 card for former Minnesota Twins pitcher Bob Gebhard, who appeared in 13 games during the 1972 season:


Gebhard, who made his Big League debut a season earlier with 17 appearances and a 1-2 record, went 0-1 in 1972, with a bloated 8.57 earned run average over 21 innings pitched.
He would spend all of 1973 in the Minor Leagues before moving on to the Montreal Expos, where he’d make it all the way back to a Major League mound with one last appearance, pitching two innings and giving up a run, not factoring in a decision.
He would play the 1975 season in the Minors for Montreal, putting in a decent season out of the bullpen, going 4-3 with a nice 2.67 ERA over 44 appearances, but retire right after that at the age of 32.
All told, in his brief three seasons in the Major Leagues, Gebhard finished with a 1-3 record over 31 games, with an ERA of 5.93 in 41 innings, all out of the bullpen as a reliever.

  1. What are your thought on the new Blogger interface? I think it's a bit clunky, but the worst part is the elimination of the pages in favor of one long scroll. I have a few hundred drafts and now I have to scroll and scroll and scroll. Am I missing an easier way?

  2. Bob had a long career in the front office, including being the Rockies' first GM
