Happy # 74 to Lee May

Happy # 73 to Lee May, who was a quiet power hitter of the 1970s.    Overall, Lee hit 354 HR with 1,244 RBI and a .267 batting average.

He started with the Reds and hit behind Johnny Bench in that power lineup:   111 HR & 302 RBI over a 3-year stretch!

Then he went to Baltimore and hit behind Ken Singleton:  387 RBI over 4 years.

He played for the Reds in the 1972 World Series and for the Orioles in 1979.

He was quiet and played with lots of class.   He let the bat do the talking and it did a lot of that!
