JUST FOR THE FUN OF IT- 1970'S BASEBALL TRIVIA PART #74




Trivia trivia, time for the weekly trivia.
Today I want to focus on batters who struck out more than 100 times in a season.
Take a stab at the questions below and see how many you can get.
I'll post the answers tomorrow…

  1. Who recorded the lowest amount of hits in a season they K'd 100 or more times during the '70s?
  2. Who recorded the highest batting average during the decade for a player with 100+ strikeouts in a season?
  3. These two players hit the fewest home runs in a season with 100+ strikeouts with only TWO. One batter did this in 1977, followed by another just a year later. Who are they?
  4. Who collected the fewest walks in a season they struck out 100 or more times during the decade?
  5. Finally, who posted the highest On-Base-Percentage in a season they topped 100 strikeouts during the '70s?
***SPOILER ALERT! ANSWERS BELOW: 

1.
Dave Kingman, Giants. He collected only 62 hits in 1973 while topping 100 strikeouts.
2.
Dave Parker, Pirates. He batted .338 in 1977.
3.
Billy Almon, Padres, in 1977 & Omar Moreno, Pirates, in 1978.
4. Leroy Stanton, Angels. He only walked 22 times while topping 100 K's in 1972.
