1976 Kellogg's #48 - Rod Carew

  • What did he do to deserve a 1976 Kellogg's card?
    • Another "need we ask" question
    • Rod won his fourth straight (and fifth overall) AL Batting Title in 1975
    • His batting averages in the previous three seasons were .350, .364, and .359!
  • 1976 Highlights:
    • Batted .331 with 9 HR and 90 RBI
    • Was in the running for the batting title until the last day of the season.
    • The batting title race ended in controversy, but Carew said that the accusations of racism were "a bunch of hooey."
    • Finished 5th in AL MVP voting
    • Started at first base in the 1976 All Star Game and was 0 for 3 with a walk and a stolen base
