Here is yet ANOTHER of those Angels’ catchers who could have gotten a card during the 1970’s, Tom Egan:
Egan joins the incredibly long list of California catchers like Jeff
Torborg, Charlie Sands, Ike Hampton, John Stephenson and Art Kusnyer who
have received customs from this blog!
Talk about your revolving door!
For Egan, he put in eight years
with the Angels with two with the Chicago White Sox squeezed in,
playing his last Major League games in 1975 when he appeared in 28
games, batting .229 with 16 hits over 70 at-bats.
That would give him an even .200 batting average over ten seasons, with
196 hits in 979 at-bats in 373 games, all but one at the catching
position (he appeared as a first baseman once in 1971).
What exactly WERE those Angels doing with their catchers during the 1970’s? So many it’s amazing...
