321 - Rich Hinton
About This Player
Rich Hinton enjoyed a brief career in the Major Leagues pitching in parts of six seasons for five different teams from 1971 through 1979.
Hinton was drafted five different times, but did not sign until he was drafted in the 3rd round by the Chicago White Sox in 1969. Hinton would spend his career bouncing from team to team (playing for the Yankess, Rangers, Reds and Mariners), but he was a part of the White Sox organization on three different occasions.
About This Card
The airbrushing jobs on this photograph might have been necessary. Hinton was not with Texas Rangers long enough to have a photo taken. His contract was purchased from the New York Yankees in September 1972 and he was later traded to the Cleveland Indians in March 1973.
