RIP Jim Hickman (1937-2016)



Jim Hickman is the answer to a great baseball trivia question:   Who drove in Peter Rose in the 1970 All Star Game?    I am talking about the time when Pete Rose ran over Ray Fosse to score the winning run!  

We learned that Jim Hickman passed away.   

He started his baseball career with the New York Mets in 1962, or the year that the team lost 120 games.   Hickman actually had a decent year for a very bad team:  13 HR & 46 RBI.

In 1968, Hickman was traded to the Cubs and his career flourished: 89 HR over a four year period.    

His best season was in 1970:  .315 average, 32 HR & 115 RBI.

RIP Jim Hickman!
