and the topps back:
maddox had his best season in 1974 as a yankee, and was hoping to catch lightning in a bottle a second time.  unfortunately, maddox was released by the bronx bombers towards the end of spring training, effectively ending his career.  he would later bring a lawsuit against the city of new york for what he felt was a career ending knee injury that he suffered in 1975 during a yankee game played at shea stadium.  the case was dismissed in 1985.

voici à vous, 1981 elliott maddox!
