#614 Ted Uhlaender

Pictured here is a centerfielder coming off a very good season when most of the fellow tribe members had faltered around him....See #615 Steve Hargan… Started in the Twins organization….For a year and a half tore up PCL pitching while playing for Twins Denver farm club… 1966 First full season was a disappointment hitting 2 homers 22 RBIs and BA of.226… Once his rookie season was under his belt, Ted was a fine complimentary player with strong fielding skills who improved at the plate every season in Minnesota… also added some speed and some pop when he had regular work….Went to the tribe in a blockbuster trade with Cleveland that wildly favored the Indians….In two consistent seasons with Cleveland he did not lose stride….with the Reds in 1972 his playing time was almost eliminated and hit .159 in 115 Abs...did get in 6 post season at-bats…. Ironically as a career hit best against his team of origin the Twins
