#329  Roy Foster

Example of strong rookie season then quick decline....A seven year farm hand who got a chance with Cleveland after developing in the Mets, Pirates, and mid winter acquisition by the Pilots/Brewer franchise....Never had even a taste of MLB work prior.....excellent rookie debut, exceeded expectations, 23 home runs, .268 BA ....Finished second in ROY to Thurman Munson.....Follow up season not as strong 16 home runs and .245 BA.... Ranger moniker on his 1972 card was façade for he never played for them....a case of reacquisition by the tribe just before 1972 contest began....His return to Indians was uneventful....Even though the Senator name is print on his card, Roy get a one team mention in the links section.
