1971 Chicago White Sox Picture Pack #NNO - Lee Richard

On this day in 1948, Lee Richard was born.

Lee was drafted by the White Sox in the first round of the 1970 amateur draft. He played in parts of the 1971, 1972, 1974 and 1975 seasons for the ChiSox. Richard was pretty versatile for the Sox, playing shortstop, center field, third base, second base and right field for the Pale Hose throughout his tenure on the South Side.

Lee's downfall was his bat. Over four season with the Sox, he batted .217 in one hundred seventy-three games. Richard was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals in December 1975, for Buddy Bradford and Greg Terlecky. He lasted one season with St. Louis and never played in the majors again.
