Did You Know…

The only players since 1950 to drive in 100 runs while hitting fewer than 10 home runs are Tommy Herr and Paul Molitor.  Herr drove in 110 runs with only 8 home runs for the 1985 St. Louis Cardinals.  Molitor drove in 113 runs with just 9 homers in 1996 for the Minnesota Twins.

My take – Just another reason why Molitor was one of my favorites as a kid – a truly well-rounded offensive machine!!

  1. Ahhhh…I knew about Herr because it was well publicized at the time. Molitor snuck by me.
