#70 - Rod Carew
Everybody loves the long ball, but Rod Carew made a hall of fame career even though he only hit 92 over his career. How? He was a human hitting machine when he got to the plate with a career featuring over 3,000 hits, a lifetime batting average of .328, led the American League in batting average for 7 years (4 years STRAIGHT from 1972 – 1975), and was an 18X All Star! When it’s all said and done, Carew was the man teams wanted at the plate when runs needed to be driven in!
