Mike Compton

1971 Topps

Compton played in 47 games for the Philadelphia Phillies in 1970. He hit .164 with one home run in 110 at bats. Compton’s professional career stretched from 1965-1973. After his retirement, he became a minor-league manager and coach.

Compton took San Diego Padre Danny Coombs deep in the first inning of their game on May 5, 1970, for his lone career home run. The blast plated Larry Bowa, but the Padres went on to win the game 11-8.

Compton singled off Tom Seaver in the third inning of a game between the Phillies and the Mets on May 15, 1970. It was the only hit Seaver would give up that day.

We featured Denny Doyle in 2018.
