#259 Ron Kittle

Why this card is awesome: Because of those sweet aviator glasses. Maybe he borrowed a pair from Donnie Hill?

Cool stat: From 1983 to 1986, nobody hit 100 or more HR in fewer at bats than Kittle. He also led the league in HR frequency (per AB) in 1983 and 1984. I find #16 on that list interesting too. Mr. Overrated.

I'm not saying that Rice was not a great player. He was. But he's no HOFer. He got a ton of ABs and his counting stats are all inflated. His rate states are not as good--great yes, but HOF no.
