ALPHABETIC LIST OF THE
50 BRAVES PLAYERS OF THE 1970'S
WHO DIDN'T MAKE MY ORIGINAL
100 FAVORITE PLAYER LIST
#6 MIKE BEARD
ATLANTA BRAVES 1974-1977
On the plus side, Mike Beard was 4-0 with the Braves in 1975. On the down side, Mike blew three saves that year without recording one. Statistically, his best game appears to be the August 2, 1975 game in San Diego where he pitched a scorless 12th, 13th, 14th and 15th to secure a win.
He never won another major league game after 1975.
I seem to remember Skip Caray pointing out that it was interesting that Mike Beard didn't have a beard.
I also think it's interesting that ZZ Top drummer Frank Beard doesn't have a beard, though that observation has no baseball connection that I know of.
