1976 Hostess #111 - Jeff Burroughs

  • This five-year set of stats is full of ups and downs.
  • Burroughs was the AL MVP in 1974 and also had good power years in 1973 and 1975
  • Jeff's batting average fell of badly in 1975 and he also led the AL with 155 strikeouts
  • Burroughs had a similar year in 1976, but he hit only 18 home runs
  • Jeff was traded  to the Atlanta Braves after the 1976 season. At first he didn't want to go (Burroughs contended that he had a no-trade clause), but he finally relented.
  • Burroughs had a couple of good years with the Braves but then he struggled through the 1979 and 1980 seasons. 
  • Before peak, peak, or after peak? after peak
