and the topps back:
kuiper obviously did not hit any home runs during his 4-year tenure with the giants (his only career roundtripper came in 1977 against fellow broadcaster steve stone). still, he hit .280 in his first season in san francisco with a respectable .375 obp in 107 games. kuiper was released by the giants in june of 1985 despite being 3 for 5 with a walk and two sacrifices in 9 appearances (all as a pinch hitter). his last big league at bat resulted in a single off of the reds' tom hume.

voici à vous, 1982 duane kuiper!
