Another National League addition to my on-going 1978 "30 Home Run Club" sub-set, another Los Angeles Dodger!
Today's addition is "The Penguin" Ron Cey, who hit a career-best 30 to give the Dodgers four sluggers reaching the mark, a new Major League record at the time:
After the 1982 season he moved on to the Chicago Cubs where he’d play for another four seasons, then finish up his career with a single season in Oakland.
By the time he retired, he collected 1868 hits, with 316 home runs, 1139 RBIs and 977 runs scored with a .261 batting average.
He was named to the All-Star team six straight seasons between 1974 and 1979, and garnered MVP consideration five seasons, with four of them consecutive from 1974 to 1977.
