Today I post up my “missing” 1970 card for former outfielder Ron Davis, who wrapped up a five-year career in 1969 as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates:
Playing in 62 games, Davis batted .234 with 15 hits over 64 at-bats
while manning all three outfield spots, driving in four runs and scoring
10 with a couple of extra-base-hits.
His career started as one of the many youngsters for the Houston Colt
.45’s back in 1962 as a 20-year old, appearing in six games before
spending the following three seasons in their minor league system before
making it back up in 1966.
In 1968 he was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals in mid-season, getting
to play in the World Series as a member of the National League champs
who’d end up losing to the Detroit Tigers, going 0-7 at the plate,
before playing that final year in ‘69 over in Pittsburgh.
