      No, but but good guess as it's in the same timeframe.

                    I can't help thinking it's gotta be someone who played on a team with a somewhat perennially dominant pitching staff. ...altho it could very well be simple fortune. I have 2 players in mind, so I'll go with my first instinct.

                    Boog Powell?

                        Would it be cheating to ask if he's a HOFer? Probably would be; we've already narrowed down the era and eliminated half the field. (But I wouldn't complain knowing heh.)

                        Killebrew?
                        Put it in the books.

                          It is not Killebrew.

                          I'll hold off for now on answering the HOFer question.
