The next player up in the ongoing “1976 Project” is former pitcher Mike Bacsik of the Texas Rangers.
Check out my card:
Bacsik appeared in seven games for the Rangers in 1975, good for 26.2 innings of work.
He posted a 1-2 record with a 3.71 earned run average and 13 strikeouts during what was his rookie year.
He’d go on to pitch a few more years in the big leagues, 1976 in Texas
and then 1979-80 with the Minnesota Twins before leaving the game with a
career 8-6 record, with a 4.43 ERA and 77 K’s over 73 games and 172.2
