He was the first string Catcher after that, and Tenace would help them win two more World Series Titles (1973 & 1974). He would have at least 22 Home Runs in the next four years, and while he was not the owner of a great Batting Average, he knew how to get Walks. In that 1973 to 1975 run, he would always have at least 100 Walks, and he was the league leader in that stat in 1974. Tenace would make the All-Star team in 1975, and like so many great Oakland players, he would leave via Free Agency after the 1976 season when he signed with the San Diego Padres.With Oakland, he would have 603 Hits with 121 Home Runs and an On Base Percentage of .374.
