Completely original and unaltered. Manny Mota did one thing very well for parts of twenty seasons in the National League - he hit singles. From 1966 to 1973, he batted over .300 in seven of eight seasons for the Pirates, Expos and Los Angeles Dodgers, usually as a platoon outfielder, facing left-handed pitchers. Beginning in 1974, the left handed Mota became primarily a pinch hitter, beloved by Dodger fans for his ability to knock in runs with line drive singles in the late innings.
