I wonder if Concepcion went 10 years between leadoff assignments? 73 to 83.

I wonder if Concepcion went 10 years between leadoff assignments? 73 to 83.

The game in 1983 was actually his third straight game in the leadoff spot that year, but your point is valid. Though Concepcion had good speed and was a good base stealer, he rarely hit in the leadoff spot, as throughout his career he played with such players as Pete Rose, Joe Morgan, Dave Collins, Eddie Milner, and Gary Redus.

Actually, I'm somewhat puzzled that Concepcion is leading off in 1983 instead of Milner, but when I checked on baseball-reference.com, I noticed that Milner was struggling at this point of the season (.222 Avg, .553 OPS). But Concepcion wasn't doing much better (.239 Avg, .607 OPS). The best hitters in the lineup at this point in the season were Cesar Cedeño (.358 Avg, .979 OPS) and Ron Oester (.368 Avg, .949 OPS).


The April 27, 1983 lineup probably would have worked better had it been:

Oester 2b
Milner cf (Once he gets the OBP up, he would be the natural choice to lead off)
Cedeño rf
Driessen 1b
Bench 3b
Walker lf
Concepcion ss
