As a player, Alou was one of the most consistent hitters in the National League: .286, 206 HR, 852 RBI & 2,101 hits.
He broke with the Giants in 1958, was traded to Milwaukee (1964-65) and then had some great years in Atlanta (1966-69). Later, he played with the A’s, the Yankees, Expos & Brewers.
Along the way, Alou led the NL twice in hits, i.e. 1966 & 1968.
His best season was probably 1966: .327 average, 31 HR, 74 RBI, 122 runs & 218 hits. He finished # 5 in the NL MVP vote.
As a manager, Alou was 691-717 with the Expos and later the Giants. His Expos had the best record in baseball (.649) the year of the 1994 strike. Wonder how deep those Expos would have gone that year?
Alou’s two brothers, Matty & Jesus, also played in the majors.
