“Let me see if I got this right. You buy low grade
beat up cards and feature them on your blog.
That’s awesome. Totally different than all the
other blogs I have seen featuring the nicest cards.”
Tommy Thevenow hit two homers during the regular season. Both came in 1926 about a week apart. Both were of the inside-the-park variety.
He also hit another in the World Series, another insider-the-parker, giving him three that year.
He would hit no others.
For the remainder of his career, a total of 3,347 at-bats, Thevenow would not hit another round-tripper, a major league record.
For most of his 15-year career, Thevenow struggled at the plate.
Except during the 1926 World Series. He finished 10-for-24 with a .417 batting average, helping the Cardinals to a world championship.
I knew none of this before that crease attracted me to purchase this poor old baseball card. It's amazing what prompts us to learn about these old ballplayers.
