Happy # 76 Ron Hunt

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

(Before It's News)

Ron Hunt broke in with the Mets in 1963.  He hit .272 with 10 HR and was # 2 in the Rookie of the Year vote behind Pete Rose.  

He hit .303 in 1965 and .288 in 1966.

However, nobody remembers him for that or his .273 average or 1,479 hits over 12 seasons.  

We remember Ron Hunt because he got hit by a pitch 243 times.   in 1971, he got hit 50 times with Montreal.    The next two guys on that list are Don Baylor (35) and Craig Biggio (34).

Hunt retired with a .368 on-base-pct.   

How did he do it?   I don’t know but he was deadly with the bases loaded or when you really a runner on base.
