UPDATE: Quickie Contest: Win Some Free Wax

First let me say I am sorry for the confusion...The answer is Steve Balboni with 36 homeruns in 1985. But I misread the 2nd stat I threw out there...he let THE MINORS in homeruns 6 times...see the entry that I misread here.

The winner is Paul from Paul's Random Stuff. Just email me Paul and I'll send your cards out right away. Thank you everyone for entering!

I already have full sets for these five packs from my repackage box so I'm giving them away...If you would like three hobby packs of Topps 2008 Series 1 and two packs of 1989 Score just be the first to answer the following question in the comments section...

As you might expect, George Brett holds most of the Royals hitting records but here's one he doesn't hold: home runs in a single season. That record is held by a player who led the American league in home runs six times but never gets mentioned for Hall of Fame consideration. Who is he?

it should be Balboni... but he never led the American League in homers. Let alone 6 times...
No Royal has led the American League in Homers

There doesn't appear to be any player who has lead the American League in home runs six times who isn't in the Hall of Fame already, even including active players.

But the current single season American League home run leader would be Roger Maris with 61.

Trick question?

Ken Griffey Jr?

Nobody said Buddy Biancalanna, but I'm gonna guess Tartabull. he hit 34 in 87

--David said...

Maybe it's a trick, and the answer is a pitcher who led the league in HRs given up!

Steve Balboni with 36 in 1985. But he never led the league. Did you mean led the Royals? because he had seasons of 28, 36, 29, 24, 23 and 21.
