ALPHABETIC LIST OF
THE 50 BRAVES PLAYERS OF THE 1970'S
WHO DIDN'T MAKE MY ORIGINAL 100 FAVORITE PLAYER LIST
#36 ROGER MORET
ATLANTA BRAVES 1976
I knew through the magic of baseball cards that Roger (or Rogelio according to some cards) had two very good seasons with the Red Sox, a 13-2 season in 1973 and a 14-3 season in 1975. So I hoped for the best when he came to Atlanta in 1976. Unfortunately, he won only three games as a Brave, the best win being a complete game 9-1 win over the San Diego Padres on June 1, 1976.
Roger famously went into a catatonic state before he was scheduled to pitch a game as a member of the Detroit Tigers in 1978. He recovered, but his career ended shortly after that.
I do like the fact that he looks quite happy in the Braves pictures I have posted here.
