  1. A nice man but not a good hitter. His unorthodox batting stance was one of the strangest in history and obviously impeded his hitting. RIP JOHN and work on that stance in Heaven…

    • Hmm…check your facts. Wockenfuss was a fantastic hitter against LHP especially. He hit 31 homers in 1979-80 in only about 600 at-bats. He was not a very good catcher, but he was known for being a helluva hitter, which is why Sparky and the Tigers used him at first, DH, and the outfield as well as a backup catcher.
