228 - Bobby Darwin
About This Player
Bobby Darwin played in nine Major League seasons for six different teams. Darwin played in one Major League game in 1962 as a pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels. His next appearance came in 1969 with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Darwin switched to the outfield and returned to the Major Leagues again in 1971. In 1972, after being traded to the Twins, Darwin would establish himself as the starting right fielder for the next four seasons. While finishing in the top ten in the American League for home runs and RBI in 1972 and 1974, Darwin also led the league in strikeouts in 1972, 1973 and 1974. Darwin would later be traded to the Brewers, and then the Red Sox, and finally the Cubs.
About This Card
This would be the first card I have written about featuring a Minnesota Twin. As a Twins fan, I'm surprised I had not written about a Twin until now.
