So here is the final post for this year of 2020. The title is sort of a play on words, no not of Happy New Year, but more We Hardly Knew You or How We Knew You. Early last week on 21 December 2020 Leftfielder, 2nd and 1st baseman Howie Kendrick announced his retirement after a 15 season career. The big highlights of his career of course is the 2019 NLDS game 5 winning 10th inning grand slam vs The Los Angeles Dodgers. Plus his MVP for the NLCS vs the St. Louis Cardinals.
Since I don't spend lots of times with details here are some scans of a few Howie Kendrick cards as a little tribute to his career.
