Dan Lee Briggs
Dan Briggs was drafted in the 2nd round of the 1970 draft by the California Angels. He made his major league debut against the White Sox on September 10, 1975. He played 3 seasons with the Halo'd ones before being granted free agency at the end of the 1977 season. He signed with the Indians in 1978 and was traded by them on March 30, 1979 to the Padres for Mike Champion. While hitting in Jack Murphy stadium he played in 104 games getting 227 AB, 47 H and 8 HR with 30 RBI. Evidently the management in San Diego didn't think enough as they traded him to Montreal with Bill Almon for cash....Dave Cash. He didn't play in the majors in 1980 and only got in 9 games for the Expos in 1981 before being traded to the Cubs for the 1982 season for Mike Griffin. He played in 1982 and 1983 for the Yakult Sparrows of the Nippon Pacific Baseball League. I got the card from ABC Unlimited.
