#776 Bill Voss

Bill Voss:  a journeyman outfielder,, more known for glove and above average range..., had occasional pop…. 1971 was his best power season.  His high number 1971 card is bit of an anomaly, possibly the first Brewer photo ever taken at spring training in 1971 (1970 spring training photos and cards were of the Seattle Pilots) …Started in Chi Sox organization but is best known for time in California…. placed high in outfielder double plays with extremely little playing time in 1968….played for three teams in his final season; Milwaukee, Oakland, and St. Louis.  Possibly 1969 was best season although in 71 he hit over half of his career home runs…Good fielder with an excellent arm…. …..who most regular playing time was on teams that had little hitting…I believe the pic is from spring training at Tempe Az, with it… telltale bluffs in the background…facility is still be used…never returned to minors after leaving the White Sox organization
