#22 JIM HARDIN
ATLANTA BRAVES 1972
Pitcher Jim Hardin won 18 games for the 1968 Orioles, which was by far his career year.
I also think it's interesting he was on the 1969 and 1970 Orioles World Series teams, yet didn't make a post-season appearance either year!
He signed as a free agent with the Braves in 1972 and posted a 5-2 record with the team. His best game as a Brave seems to be his 3-2 complete game win over the Pirates on July 7, 1972. He also hit a home run on June 28, 1972 off of Fred Norman of the Padres.
Jim Hardin died in a plane crash in 1991 at age 47.
