ON-CARD ALL-STAR: 1970 FRANK HOWARD

Time to add the great Frank Howard to my on-going "On-Card All-Star" thread, celebrating "Hondo's" 1969 start in the Midsummer Classic representing the Washington Senators:

  

Howard was smack dab in the middle of an incredible run, topping 40 homers three straight seasons with a career best in 1969 of 48, while driving in over 100 with a high of 126 in 1970.

Those efforts got him top-10 finishes in the league MVP voting each year, finishing 8th, 4th and 5th respectively between 1968 and 1970.
An absolute beast at the plate, he would be the last Big League player until Jay Buhner (1995-97) to hit 40+ homers three years in a row from 1968-1970, with a high of 48 in 1969, though leading the league in 1968 and 1970 with 44.
He was also one of the early players to join the 30-home runs in each league club, hitting 31 with the Dodgers in 1962 before reaching the plateau again in 1967 when he slammed 36 taters.
All told, he finished his career with 382 homers over 16 seasons, before moving on to a coaching and managerial career, making him somewhat of a baseball lifer.
I loved him when he was with the New York Yankees later in his coaching career! I mean, how often do you get to appreciate a guy who was so nasty as a player that he had TWO great nicknames: “The Capital Punisher”, and “Hondo”!

  4. I am here to testify on how Dr ONIHA saved my marriage. I saw a post on a particular site sharing testimony on how a great spell caster brought back her ex. Initially I thought the post was unreal but I later had a second thought and another person still shared his testimony on how he brought back his wife. So I contacted the spell caster as instructed by the post. I have no option than to try my best because my Husband left me with my two kids after a minor misunderstanding. Me and my husband got married over six years and we lived so happily. At a certain time my husband started behaving strangely. When I saw the post, I contacted the spell caster on his email and he told me not to worry that my husband will come back to me and the kids in two days once he finishes casting the reunite spell. To my greatest surprise, my husband came back to me begging for a second chance. I am very happy now because my marriage is restored by this great spell caster DR ONIHA and we are living happily together as one family again. I want to use this medium to let everyone here know that this is real and if you are out there having this same problem please kindly contact Dr ONIHA the great spell caster he can also help you solve your problems...
