A pretty good infielder who spent two short stints at home in Shea. In 1981 as a semi-regular for the White Sox, had a batting average over .300, which was pretty impressive for an infielder in those days. Pictured is his card from the 1980 Topps set; there is also a card below the stats box showing him with the Mets, an obscure 1970s Padres card, and four more attractive cards.
