FAVORITE BRAVES PLAYERS OF THE 1970'S
#35 LARVELL "SUGAR BEAR" BLANKS
ATLANTA BRAVES 1972-1975, 1980
I could never refer to him as "Larvell Blanks" or "Sugar Bear." He was always Larvell "Sugar Bear" Blanks, because I just had to say his entire name with any reference. As in "Hey, did you see that Larvell "Sugar Bear" Blanks had a couple of hits last night?" He also gets some points for making two stops to Atlanta during his career, the last being in 1980. Larvell "Sugar Bear" Blanks had a career high in games (141) and hits (110) for the Braves in 1975.
