1979 Rating -- 10 comment -- favorite player of a friend; I could get a good trade
He won the Triple Crown in 1967. That was the only year he led the league in RBIs or homers. He did win three batting titles included the lowest ever winning average of .301. That was certainly the year of the pitcher since the entire league batted .296 in 1930, the year of the hitter.
He hit 452 homers. None of them came in 97 plate appearances against Gaylord Perry who he batted .161 against.
