Ty Cline

1970 Topps

Cline spent parts of 12 seasons in the major leagues, coming up with the Cleveland Indians in 1960 and finishing with the Cincinnati Reds in 1971. He hit .302 in 101 games for the Milwaukee Braves in 1964 which was arguably his best year. The next year he played in 123 games for the Braves but saw his average fall to .191. He was traded to the Chicago Cubs the following season. Cline was a .238 hitter for his career.


Cline was a member of the 1970 Reds’ team that reached the World Series. In addition to the triple he mentions on his survey, he scored the winning run in the decisive third game of the NLCS against the Pittsburgh Pirates, after reaching on a walk in the eighth inning. He had a hit in three at bats in the 1970 World Series which the Reds lost to the Baltimore Orioles.
