Up on the blog today, a “not so missing” 1979 card for former San Diego padres outfielder Jim Wilhelm, who made his MLB debut in 1978 and appeared in 10 games:
Over those ten games Wilhelm hit a blistering .368 with seven hits in 19 at-bats, scoring two runs while driving in four.
He’d be back in 1979, playing in 39 games, this time hitting .243 with 25 hits in 103 at-bats, both scoring and driving in eight runs, with four doubles and three triples.
Turns out that would be the sum total of his Major League tenure, as he would retire shortly after the 1979 season, spending all six years of his professional career in the San Diego organization.
His Big League time ended with a .262 batting average, with 32 hits over 122 official at-bats in 49 games, with 10 runs scored and 12 RBIs.
