Jim Breazeale

1973 Topps

Breazeale spent parts of four seasons in the major leagues, playing with the Atlanta Braves from 1969-1972 and then, kind of astonishingly, returning six years later to play 25 games for the Chicago White Sox in 1978. Rarely do you see a player return to the minor leagues for six seasons and then manage to make their way back to the majors, but Breazeale did jus that. After his final season with Atlanta in 1972, he returned to the Braves’ AAA club in Richmond where he spent the next four seasons. He then played part of a year with Durango in the Mexican League before working his way back to the majors with Richmond and the White Sox AAA club in Des Moines. Breazeale was never able to find his stroke in the big leagues. His best year was 1972 where he hit .247 with five home runs for the Braves.
