Lou Brock: The MVP Contender
Lou Brock hit full stride as a major league baseball player right around 1967. His game was peaking on all levels – from hitting, to running, and on-base percentage, Brock was becoming a National League force.
In ’67, he made his first appearance as an All-Star, and he finished in 7th place for the MVP award.
Brock would go on to rank in the Top 15 for the MVP award during seven different seasons. His highest finish would be 2nd place in 1974, behind Steve Garvey of the Dodgers.
