1977 Hostess #47 - Larry Herndon

  • Larry Herndon was coming off a pretty good rookie season in 1976. He batted .288 in 115 games.
  • Herndon had a sophomore jinx in 1977. He was batting .239 when he was placed on the disabled list in mid June. 
  • Larry wasn't happy with the Giants because they didn't take him off of the disabled list and went AWOL in late August. The Giants asked the commissioner's office for permission to place him on the disqualified list. Herndon remained on the disqualified list until November 1.
