FAVORITE BRAVES PLAYERS OF THE 1970'S
#61 GIL GARRIDO
ATLANTA BRAVES 1968-1972
I honestly don't know what to say about Gil Garrido. The Panamanian shortstop had his best season in 1970 playing in 101 games and hitting .264. He hit his only career home run on May 27th of that year against Denny Lemaster of the Astros.
He did have the first single in Braves postseason history during the 1969 playoffs. Against Tom Seaver no less!...But then Seaver picked him off. He was the first Brave to have that done to him in the post-season, too.
He also got thrown out at the plate in this picture below.
