Biography

Powell joined the Orioles in after leading the International League in home runs at Rochester in 1961, and spent his first three seasons as a slow-footed left fielder before switching to first base in 1965. Offensively, he was an immediate success, hitting 25 home runs in 1963, then leading the American League in slugging percentage (.606) in 1964 while blasting a career-high 39 home runs despite missing several weeks because of a broken wrist. He slumped to .248 with 17 home runs in 1965, then won the American League Comeback player of the Year honors in 1966 (.287, 34 home runs, 109 runs batted in) while being hampered by a broken finger.
[edit]

Baltimore's Glory Years

In 1966, Powell led the Orioles to the 1966 World Series and there they surprised the baseball world by sweeping the mighty Los Angeles Dodgers in 4 games to become baseball's world champions.

Before the 1967 season, Powell lamented, "once, just once, i'd like to through a whole season without an injury," and he did just that, playing over 150 games each of the next three seasons. In 1969 he hit a career-high .304 with 37 home runs and 121 runs batted in, and in 1970 he was the American League Most Valuable Player, narrowing missing a .300 average on the last day of the season and hitting 35 more home runs with 114 runs batted in. In the 1970 World Series, Powell homered in the first two games as the Orioles whipped the Cincinnati Reds in 5 games. Prior to the 1971 seaon, Powell appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated for a 1971 baseball preview issue, when the regular season ended, Powell helped Baltimore to a third straight World Series that year, blasting a pair of home runs in game two of the American League Championship Series against the up-and-coming Oakland Athletics, but he hit only .111 in the 1971 World Series as Baltimore lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates in seven games.
[edit]

Calling It A Career

The aging slugger was traded to Cleveland with Don Hood for Dave Duncan and a minor leaguer before the 1975 season, and he hit .297 with 27 home runs for the Indians that year, but he hit only nine home runs in 1976 and none as a pinch-hitter for the Dodgers in 1977.
[edit]

Career

In a 17-season career, Powell posted a .266 batting average with 339 home runs and 1187 RBI in 2042 games. Powell hit three home runs in a game thre times, and was second only to Eddie Murray on the Orioles all-time home run list before Cal Ripken Jr. surpassed Powell in 1998.
[edit]

Highlights

* 3-time All-Star (1969-71)
* American League MVP Award (1970)

Well, Thobbs ! Hows that working out for you?

Do you expect the floor will be full of Parts the morning of the 18th? :worship:

Guess that depends on how many "Everyone" is eh?
