JUST FOR THE FUN OF IT- 1970'S BASEBALL TRIVIA PART II




Here's the second installment of 1970's baseball trivia to get some brains working. Answers tomorrow:

1. Reggie Jackson shared three home run titles in his career, funny enough with a different Milwaukee Brewers player each time. One of these shared titles occurred during the 1970's. Who was the Brewer that shared this homer title with "Mr. October" in the '70's?

2. Who was the only pitcher to hurl 10 or more shutouts in a season during the 1970's?

3. What Major League team was the very first to have three players swat 40 or more homers in the same season?

4. Who was the only player to lead his league in batting, on-base percentage and slugging in the same season in the 1970's?

5. What National League shortstop notoriously had 618 plate appearances/549 at-bats one season, yet still only managed to drive in 12 runs!?

***SPOILER ALERT! ANSWERS: 

1. George Scott: 1975
2. Jim Palmer: 1975
3. Atlanta Braves: 1973: Hank Aaron, Davey Johnson and Darrell Evans
4. Fred Lynn: 1979
5. Enzo Hernandez: Padres: 1971
