1977 Topps Baseball #90 - Cesar Cedeno

  • Cesar Cedeno was THE guy for the Astros for most of the 1970s. He wasn't quite a Hall of Fame guy, but he was a heck of a player for a long time.
  • It's interesting to see his stat lines on baseball reference. He was hit by a pitch 11 times in 1977. He was hit only once in the previous season (1976) and wasn't hit at all the next year (1978). I wonder what happened to cause him to be hit so many times in '77.
  • 1977 Stats: .279, 14 HR, 71 RBI, 92 runs, 61 stolen bases in 141 games
    • As late as July 25 Cedeno was batting only .207. He had a late season surge, including a 22 game hitting streak in August and September, to raise his average to a respectable level.
