Tom Hutton

1979 Topps

Hutton spent 12 seasons playing in the majors, hitting .248 with 22 home runs in 952 games. He first came up with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1966 but appeared in just three games. He returned to the minors and did not come back to the majors until 1969 when he played in 16 games for Los Angeles. Once again he went back to the minors and stayed there for two more years before coming back up with the Philadelphia Phillies in 1972. This time Hutton was in the majors for good and he remained on a big-league roster until 1981. He was with Philadelphia from 1972-1977. His best year at the plate arguably came in 1977 when he hit .309 in 107 games. After a brief stop in Toronto, Hutton joined the Montreal Expos in 1978 and remained there for the rest of his career.


Following his playing career, Hutton was a broadcaster for ESPN, New York Yankees, Toronto Blue Jays, the Expos and currently the Florida Marlins.
