View Full Version : Reds greats

Only 2 players have accomplished all these feats in a season (although not necessarily in the same season) with the Reds: led the team in Avg., led the team in HR, hit 30 doubles, stole 30 bases, led the NL in fielding percentage at their position. Who are they?

No, Cy put together 3 of the 5, he never led NL outfielders in fielding percentage or stole 30 bases with the Reds.

No good guess, but Larkin's never led the league in fielding percentage.

I'd also guess Davis, but dont think its right. Wanted to guess Morgan during his brief power surge, but with Foster and Bench, that cant be true. Cant think of anyone else - hopefully its some old guys. I'd rather be shown ignorant of them than the past 30-40 years. :(

Not Davis. Actually, both are within the last 40 years.

How about Vada Pinson and Dan Driessen?
Driessen actually stole 31 in 1977. Didn't know that.

Is one of them Vada Pinson?

sweaver you nailed both of them. Very good! Driessen was not too much of a power hitter but led the team when they were awful in the early 80's and as you said stole quite a few bases earlier in his career.
Curses. Curses. Foiled again. WTG Sweaver.

Another victory for Lee's SBE. I ran a search for Reds with 30 steals and 30 doubles in a season, and picked a couple of likely suspects.
