JUST FOR THE FUN OF IT- 1970'S BASEBALL TRIVIA PART #78 (A REVISIT OF #1)

After 77 weeks of trivia on Thursdays, I thought it might be time to revisit a set of questions or two from the very beginning, as it's getting harder and harder to dig up new topics/questions to bend your brains!
I may be doing away with "Trivia Thursday" altogether, but the jury is still out on that one. We shall see.
I'll post the answers tomorrow, as usual…

1. Only two players in Major League history have had seasons of 40+ homers in three different decades. The last of which were during the 1970's. Who were they?

2. Besides Nolan Ryan, only one other pitcher threw two no-hitters during the decade. Who was it?

3. Only one player had a 20-20-20 season in the decade (20 doubles/20 triples/20 homers). Who was he?

4. The last pitcher to have 30 or more complete games did it in the 1970's. Who was it and when?

5. Johnny Bench won his two N.L. MVP awards in 1970 and 1972. Ironically, the same player finished second in voting both seasons. Who was he?


 ***SPOILER ALERT*** ANSWERS

1. Harmon Killebrew and Hank Aaron (1950's, 1960's and 1970's)
2. Steve Busby, 1973 & 1974
3. George Brett, 1979
4. Jim "Catfish" Hunter, 1975
5. Billy Williams
