NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1977 GLENN ADAMS

On the blog today we have a “not so missing” card that could almost be considered “missing” considering the amount of games this player played in during the 1976 season, outfielder Glenn Adams of the San Francisco Giants:

Adams did appear in 69 games in 1976, though only accumulating 75 plate appearances, thus the grey area between missing and not-so-missing, but hey, it’ll get you a card here on the blog either way!
Originally up for the first time in 1975 with 61 games, Adams hit .243 his second year under the Big League sun, with 18 hits in 74 official at-bats.
He would move on to the Minnesota Twins in 1977 and hit a very impressive .338 over 95 games, with 91 hits in 269 at-bats along with 49 runs batted in and 32 runs scored. Not bad at all!
He’d stay in Minnesota through the 1981 season before one last year in the Big Leagues with the Toronto Blue Jays in 1982 when he hit .258 in limited play, 30 games worth and 66 at-bats.
Overall, and I have to say I didn’t realize this even though I remember him well, Adams finished his Major League career with a very admirable .280 batting average over his eight-years, with 452 hits in 1617 at-bats, with 225 RBIs and 152 runs scored.
I just had to go look at his Minor League numbers and man this guy could rake!
Over his professional career he had seasons of .335, .352, and .330, hitting an overall .311 in his eight years of Minor League ball, including a .334 clip in Triple-A over four seasons!

  2. I'd call him "missing", he lasted the whole season in the majors in '76 and remained in the majors afterward.

  3. 06/26/1977 - Glenn collected 8 RBI, a team record still, in a 19-12 win over the Southside Hitmen. It was the same day Carew went 4-5 to push his average to .403. Quite a day at old Met Stadium.
