We say happy birthday to Bill Melton who was born in Mississippi on this day in 1945.
Question: What sluggers won AL HR titles in the 1970's?
The answer is Frank Howard, Dick Allen (twice), Reggie Jackson (twice), George Scott, Graig Nettles, Jim Rice (twice), Gorman Thomas and Bill Melton.
Wonder how many of you named Bill Melton of the Chicago White Sox?
Bill Melton broke with the White Sox in 1968 and showed some power with 23 HR & 85 RBI in second year. He led the AL in HR in 1971 with 33 HR.
His numbers fell off after that and he retired with 160 HR & 591 RBI. Melton played third for most of his career.
