# 364 Johnny Callison 

A good player whose prime was two to four  years in the early to mid sixties....however was given such advance billing of superstardom his career is a bit a disappointment....Spearheaded the infamous 1964 Phillies pennant drive... hit bit below average during the team’s infamous swoon hit 3 homers one day against Milwaukee in a losing effort....became average player after his prime as the Phillies sank back into mediocrity ...took his bat to Chicago Cub where he became a regular working fill in 1970 a letdown in 1971....acquisitions of Rick Monday and Jose Cardanel prompted a trade to Yankees...Career moment was  hitting a 3 run home to win the All Star game....swan song came as a reserve outfielder with the Yankees 1972-73.
