Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Richard Allen Dietz (September 18, 1941 - June 28, 2005) was an American catcher in Major League Baseball who played for the San Francisco Giants, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Atlanta Braves from 1966 to 1973. Born in Crawfordsville, Indiana, Dietz enjoyed his best season in 1970 with the Giants, when he batted .300 with 22 home runs and 107 runs batted in. He also drew 109 walks, giving him a superb on-base percentage of .430. In the All-Star Game that year, Dietz hit a dramatic home run in the bottom of the ninth inning that helped propel the National League to a comeback win. (It is also Dietz who is in the on-deck circle later in the game, immediately congratulating Pete Rose after the infamous collision with Ray Fosse.) Dietz followed with another fine season in 1971.show more
