NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1974 GARY NIEBAUER

Here’s a “not so missing” 1974 card today for former Atlanta Braves pitcher Gary Neibauer, who pitched the last 16 games of his 5-year Major League career in 1973:


Neibauer finished up with a 2-1 record for the Braves along with a bloated 7.17 earned run average over21.1 innings pitched, with a start thrown in.
He originally came up in 1969 with Atlanta, and pitched for them into 1972 before getting traded to the Philadelphia Phillies in June of that year, appearing in nine games for them the rest of the way.
Come 1973, he’d be released by Philly and would get picked up by the Braves again, where he made those last appearances of his career.
All told, he’d finish his Big League tenure with a record of 4-8 over 75 appearances, sporting an ERA of 4.78 in 148.2 innings of work.
