    1. Ahh, just saw Hoyle's answer. Rice makes sense, lots of dingers a couple of years.

  3. Great pic. Those two were pretty awesome in their prime. But I'll always remember Luz misplaying a fly ball against the wall against the dreaded Dodgers that cost them dearly. I think LA went on to play the Yanks in the Series. But he sure could crush a baseball. And Schmitty wasn't too bad either.

  4. Also I think there was a strike or lockout to begin the 1972 season. Pete would have gotten 200 for sure.
