Tom Grieve played in 66 games for the Rangers in 1973. He played all three outfield positions and one game at designated hitter. He appears here on card number 579 of the 1973 Topps set.
In the 66 games he appeared in Tom put in 320.1 innings in the outfield. He handled 68 of the 68 chances he saw for a perfect fielding percentage on the season. That put him 22 points above the league average.
On the offense Grieve managed a .309 batting average in 136 plate appearances. That was a higher average than any of the three starting outfielders. His .348 on base percentage was behind only Jeff Burroughs in the regular outfield. Tom scored 22 times while bumping his teammates in 21 times.
By 1973 Tom seemed to be in a pretty good 60 game groove. This was his third season in the Bigs and he had averaged 59 games a season. His numbers were pretty good on both sides of the diamond. It remained to be seen though if he could handle an increased workload.
