NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1974 RICK HENNINGER

Today’s blog post has a 1974 card for former Texas Ranger pitcher Rick Henninger, who played in the Big Leagues for only six games during the 1973 season:


Henninger had a brief career to say the least, appearing in those six games between September 3rd and 24th in 1973 for a total of 23 innings, but it was successful, as he went on to post an earned run average of 2.74 while going 1-0.
However, though only 25 years of age and on a team you’d think could use a young arm, he’d never get a call-up again, spending the last three years of his pro career in the Rangers and Cleveland Indians systems before retiring after the 1975 season.

  1. Great card! In fairness, Henninger was on the Craig Swan/Glenn Abbott rookie card that season but I like your version much better. He looked more clean shaven on that rookie card. He had a Dedicated Rookie and Career Capper all wrapped up in one!
