Here’s a “missing” 1979 card for former outfielder Henry Cruz, who squeezed in four Major League seasons in the mid-70’s:
Cruz played in 53 games for the White Sox in what would be his final
year in the big leagues, hitting .221 with 17 hits over 77 at-bats with a
couple of homers and ten runs batted in.
It would cap off a career that had him with the Los Angeles Dodgers in
1975 and 1976, then onto the Pale Hose for the final two seasons in 1977
All together he hit .229, collecting 64 hits over 280 at-bats in 171 games, with 32 runs scored and 34 RBI’s.
He’d go on to play in the Mexican League all the way into the 1985
season, making it 14 years in pro ball before hanging them up.
