Today's blog post has a "not so missing" 1979 card for former infielder Enzo Hernandez, who wrapped up an eight-year MLB career with four games as a Los Angeles Dodger in 1978:
Hernandez, who spent the previous seven seasons as a member of the San Diego Padre, went 0-3 at the plate for the Dodgers in his brief tenure, closing out a career that was quite "typical" as a light-hitting infielder during the 1970's.
Of course, what Hernandez is most famous for is his rookie year of 1971 when he had 618 plate appearances and 549 at-bats, and somehow managed to drive in ONLY 12 runs!
Incredible when you think about it.
The rest of his career was pretty much the same, as he would finish with a .224 average, with 522 hits over 2327 at-bats, with 241 runs scored and 113 RBIs.
The light-hitting infielder did manage to swipe a few bases along the way, with 129 in his Big League career, with a high of 37 in 1974, easily his best year as a Major Leaguer.
