Mike Jorgensen

Michael Jorgensen
Batted: Left
Threw: Left
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 195 lbs.
Born: August 16, 1948 in Passaic, NJ
Drafted: 4th round 1966 by the Mets
Departed: traded to the Montreal Expos with
Tim Foli and Ken Singleton for Rusty Staub, April 1972
Acquired: sent from the Texas Rangers to complete an earlier deal, October 1979; the Rangers had traded two players to be named later (Jorgensen and
Ed Lynch) to the Mets for Willie Montanez

Mike's career lasted seventeen years, but he never got to the post-season until his last year in the big leagues. That year, though, he went all the way to the World Series with the Cardinals, appearing in two games in the Fall Classic. The card pictured here is from humbler days, on 1983 Fleer with the Mets. His biggest years came in 1974 and '75 with the Expos; he's shown with them below (among others).
