FAVORITE BRAVES PLAYERS OF THE 1970'S
#75 JIM BREAZEALE
ATLANTA BRAVES 1969, 1971-1972
Big Frank Howard (The Capital Punisher) and his signature glasses hit many a mighty home run for the Washington Senators during the late 60's and early 70's.
What does this have to do with Jim Brezeale? Well, I always thought Jim looked like Frank on his baseball cards. But the similarities ended there. Jim hit six of his career nine home runs as a Brave. He hit his first career homer on the last day of the 1971 season off Milt Wilcox and the Reds.
Of course, Frank Howard hit 382 career homers, but who's counting.
