Tenace broke with the A's in 1969. He was primarily a catcher, played some first base and was one of the many talented young players who turned the A's into a power house in the early 1970's.
Overall, Tenace hit .241, 201 HR & 674 RBI in 1,555 games. Most of those numbers came with the A's: 121 HR. His best season was 1975: 29 HR & 87 RBI.
Tenace was great in the 1972 World Series: MVP, 4 HR & 9 RBI. We remember Gene Tenace, a member of one of the best teams in major league history or the 1972-74 Oakland A's.
