1970 Rating -- 6 comment -- I wasn't that knowledgable about AL players yet.
I should have known more about a player who was MVP runner-up in 1969. He then won the 1970 MVP award and I knew more about him. He hit 339 career homers even though he played some years with the pitcher-friendly higher pitching mound.
Every time I went to an Orioles game in the last few years Powell was there at his restaurant. I remember him most from the Lite Beer commercials where the umpire says "Hey, you're Boog Powell!"
Boog was one of the few players to win a World Series and a Little League World Series.
