Jay Johnstone was a fine left-handed hitter who managed to last 20 seasons in the Major League despite playing over 130 games only once in 1969 with the Angels.
He was originally a speedy, switch-hitting centerfielder, but abandoned hitting from the right side after his rookie season. In 1976, he hit a career high of 16 HR for the White Sox.
Then in the 1976 League Championship Series, he was phenomenal in a losing effort. He was seven-for-nine in the series, but the Reds swept the Phillies in three.
Johnstone starred again in the 1981 World Series for the Dodgers, belting a two-run HR as Los Angeles came back from a 6-3 deficit to win game four, 8 to 7.
