FAVORITE BRAVES PLAYERS OF THE 1970'S
#94 JACK PIERCE
ATLANTA BRAVES 1973-1974
Jack Pierce never had much of a career while he was with the Braves, having only 2 hits in 28 at bats over two years. What I still remember most about Jack was his first major league at bat against Tom Seaver on April 27, 1973. Seaver threw him three pitches. Pierce swung three times. Pierce never came close to hitting the ball on any of his swings. Seaver's dominance during that at-bat seemed quite scary at the time. Thinking about it today it's still scary.
Jack did manage to hit 8 home runs for the 1975 Tigers.
Jack passed away at age 63 in 2012.
