From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia...

Danny Anderson Cater (born February 25, 1940) is a former Major League Baseball first baseman, third baseman, and outfielder. He was signed by the Philadelphia Phillies at the age of 18 on June 8, 1958. He played for the Phillies (1964), Chicago White Sox (1965–1966), Kansas City Athletics (1966–1967), Oakland Athletics (1968–1969), New York Yankees (1970–1971), Boston Red Sox (1972–1974), and St. Louis Cardinals (1975).

Cater played twelve seasons in the major leagues, mostly as a regular. For the eight-year period from 1965 to 1972, he averaged over 500 plate appearances per season. He was a good hitter who was tough to strike out; however, he was slow afoot, so had a knack for grounding into double plays, finishing in the top ten in the league in that category six times in those eight years, including second in both 1968 and 1969.

He finished second for the American League batting title in 1968 with a batting average of .290. It was "The Year of the Pitcher", and Carl Yastrzemski won the title with an average of .301, the lowest ever for a batting champion.

Career highlights included: 

•a pair of 5-hit games...five singles vs. the Cleveland Indians (August 30, 1967) and a double and four singles vs. the Boston Red Sox (June 21, 1970)
•eighteen 4-hit games, with the most impressive being two singles, a double, and a home run good for 4 RBI and 4 runs scored vs. the California Angels (August 12, 1973)

Cater's career totals include 1,289 games played, 1,229 hits, 66 home runs, 519 RBI, and a lifetime batting average of .276.

After retiring from baseball Danny worked at the headquarters office of the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts in Austin, Texas. He now lives in Plano, Texas.
