Description
Did you know that: Reggie Jackson was the first player, since Babe Ruth to hit three home runs in one World Series game. After striking out six consecutive times against Nolan Ryan Bo Jackson hit a Ryan pitch for a 461-foot home run. Mike Schmidt once hit a 340-foot home run in Houston's Astrodome that struck a loudspeaker 117 feet above the field. Harmon Killebrew led the league in homers six times, and six times had over 40 home runs in a season. In 1956 Mickey Mantle won baseball's Triple Crown, with an incredible 52 home runs, 130 RBIs and a batting average of .353. Jimmy Foxx holds the record for having hit over thirty home runs 12 consecutive years. "Wahoo Sam" Crawford led the National League in 1901 with a mere 16 home runs, but his 312 career triples is still the record today. The twenty-seven sluggers profiled by George Sullivan span the history of the game and offer a wealth of amazing accomplishments. Every reader will want to add his or her own favorites to the list of those players who bring energy and excitement to America's favorite pastime.
