JUST FOR THE FUN OF IT- 1970'S BASEBALL TRIVIA PART #81 (A REVISIT OF #4)




HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYONE!
Hope you all have the best of everything in 2015!
Well it's Thursday, and it's time for another round of 1970's baseball trivia…
Here's a repeat of my Trivia #4 from over a year ago. See if you have any of the answers.
I'll post them up tomorrow as usual…

Who is the only player to lead the National League in home runs in a season during the '70's with less than 40?

2. Who is the only American League batting champ during the decade that never won a major award in his career (Rookie of the Year or M.V.P.)?

3. What pitcher threw a no-hitter, winning 4-0, thanks in part to the TWO homers he hit during the game?

4. What Minnesota pitcher posted a record of 17-5 while also saving 20 games, throwing an amazing 167.2 innings all in relief in 1976?

5. What Atlanta pitcher lead the N.L. with a sterling 2.28 E.R.A. in 1974, which happened to be the only season where he posted more than 162 innings in any of his seven year career?

***SPOILER ALERT! ANSWERS BELOW***

1. Mike Schmidt: 3 times. 1974: 36, 1975: 38 and 1976: 38

2. Alex Johnson in 1970.

3. Rick Wise, June 23, 1971.

4. Bill Campbell.
