Campbell's first ML hit was a home run for the World Champion 1968 Tigers. After
three short trials, Detroit sent the 6'1" Michigan native to San Diego. In 1970,
his only season as a regular, Campbell led NL second basemen in putouts, assists,
and errors while hitting .219 with 12 HR for the Padres.
FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»July 10, 1970: The Padres launch four home runs in the 9th inning against LA but the power display comes too late and the Dodgers win, 9–7. Wes Parker has two doubles and a triple for LA. For the Padres, Ivan Murrell, Ed Spiezio and Dave Campbell hit solo homers off Bill Singer, and Cito Gaston connects for a 2-run homer off Jose Pena. The barrage is one short of the record.
