FAVORITE BRAVES PLAYERS OF THE 1970'S
#87 FRANK LACORTE
ATLANTA BRAVES 1975-1979
A starter that had a lot of promise when he came up with the Braves, Lacorte posted a career 4-24 (ouch!) record as a starter during his years with the Braves. Much like Jamie Easterly, Frank became a much better pitcher after he left Atlanta (to the Astros) and became a reliever. I tried to find a career Brave highlight for Lacorte and it looks like his best outing was a complete game victory over Burt Hooton and the Dodgers on September 13, 1976.
