Baseball in the 60s HIPPI Baseball League
Let's play TWO!!!
1964 Harman Killebrew has broken the HR record of Hank Aaron (60) with 69, Maris hit only 54 in '61. Killebrew held the career HR record after the '64 season but Hammer'n Hank reclaimed it in '65 and still holds it with 301 thru the 1967 season. Frank Robinson, Killebrew, Mantle, Mays, Cash, Colavito, Billy Williams and Banks round out the top 10. Koufax has dominated and leads in ERA/Whip/K., but Bunning has the most wins 148, followed by Drysdale, Maricahl, Larry Jackson, KOUFAX, O'Toole, Pascual, Gibson and Ford. Chance and Pappas will probably break in this season.. Surprise, surprise, Wilhelm has the most saves (137) and Face and Radatz are the only others with >100. Since batting averages were one of the top catagories in the 60's, Clemente is our leader at .331, followed by Pete Runnels, Jimmy Piersall (?), Oliva, Matty Alou and Mota, Billy WIlliams, Rich Rollins (another ?), Cepeda and Fairly.
