#91 OF George Hendrick (1973-1976)

A remarkably consistent player during his tenure in Cleveland, and his whole career. Traded to the Indians in exchange for Ray Fosse (post-Pete Rose) and Jack Heidemann, Hendrick produced seasons of 21, 19, 24, and 25 home runs. He was shipped to San Diego for Johnny Grubb, Hector Torres (who was then traded to Toronto to reacquire John Lowenstein) and Fred Kendall.

Eventually, he was dealt to St. Louis, where he spent the best part of his career. He was a big part of the Cardinals’ 1982 World Series win over the Milwaukee Brewers.
