Johnny Bench And His 1975 & 1976 World Series Championships
As the anchor of the mighty ‘Big Red Machine’, Bench helped take the Cincinnati Reds to the pinnacle of the sport during the post-seasons of 1975 and 1976.
And he did it in grand fashion…
In 1975, the Reds topped the Red Sox in 7 games Bench rung up just a .207 batting average, but was responsible for driving in 4 crucial runs. And in 1976, he dominated the Yankees. In a 4-game sweep, he hit .533 while collecting 6 RBI, scoring 4 runs, and smashing 2 home runs. His efforts in ’76 earned him the World Series MVP award.
