Nine years later Darwin was back in the show, this time as an Dodgers outfielder. Between 1972 and 1974 Darwin led the American League in strikeouts and tape measure home runs. His most prolific blast occurred on May 26, 1974, when he became just the second player ever to reach the second deck at Metropolitan Stadium, some 515 feet from home plate.
By the time Darwin was traded to the Red Sox for Bernie Carbo there was no magic left in his bat. He hit just .183 with 3 home runs in 47 games for the Sox. In May of 1977 he was traded to the Cubs where he would play just eleven more games before hanging them up.
24 bats down 59 to go.
