 Biographical Information
Dave Rader was a good-fielding catcher who came up with the San Francisco Giants in 1971. He replaced Dick Dietz behind the plate in 1972, and was named The Sporting News National League Rookie Player of the Year that season. The left handed batter showed considerable ability at the plate early on, twice hitting over .290, but his production tailed off after a trade to the Chicago Cubs in 1978. Two years later he was out of baseball.
