We remember George Foster, one of the power bats of The Big Red Machine of the 1970′s.
Foster broke with the Giants in 1969 but was traded to Cincinatti in 1972.
It took him a couple of years to get going but he became a big HR hitter: 52 in 1977 and 40 in 1978.
Overall, he hit 348 HR with 1,239 RBI. He was the NL MVP in 1977 and came in second in 1976.
