Happy # 75 Jim "The Toy Cannon" Wynn


We say happy # 75 to Jim Wynn, who was born in Cincinnati.

Jim broke with Houston in 1963 and became a regular in 1965 when the Astrodome opened.   

Over the next 10 years, he hit 223 HR in arguably the ultimate pitcher's park in baseball.   His best season was 1967:  37 HR & 107 RBI.

Later, he played a couple of years in Los Angeles and made it to the 1974 World Series.  He hit 32 HR & 108 RBI for NL Champs Dodgers.

Wynn retired with 291 HR & 964 RBI.   It's safe to say that he would have hit 400-plus  career HR in any other park in the majors.
