"Young Kerry was called up in the midst of the Yanks' outfield crisis last June. He broke into the line-up, and hit a robust .364 in his first- and last-7 games. After a base-hit in a game at Detroit on 6/19, he pulled a hamstring muscle and was returned to Syracuse to recuperate. Made 348 triples to the plate for the Chiefs, and hit .241 with 30 RBI. He's not a classy outfielder, but he makes the plays and has a good arm." - 1975 SSPC Baseball Card (Back of Card #452. Baseball Almanac Collection)
