Major League Baseball Season Recap 1967

1967 featured one of the closest pennant races in history as Boston, Detroit, and Minnesota all entered the last day within a half-game of the league lead. Boston knocked off the Twins while Detroit lost the second game of a doubleheader with the Angels to give the Red Sox the pennant by one game. However, Boston could not figure out World Series MVP Bob Gibson, who had three wins and a home run as the Cardinals beat the Red Sox in seven games to win the 1967 championship. Boston LF Carl Yastrzemski won the Triple Crown and the AL MVP award with a .326 average, 44 home runs, and 121 runs batted in. Teammate Jim Lonborg led the league with 22 wins and 246 strikeouts to win the AL Cy Young award. Orlando Cepeda (.325, 25 HR, 111 RBI) won his only MVP award in his first full season with the Cardinals.\n\nMilestones and Moments from 1967 Yankees slugger Mickey Mantle joined the 500 home run club on May 14 with a blast off Baltimore’s Stu Miller…Longtime Braves star Eddie Mathews joined Mantle on July 14 when he hit his 500th homer as a member of the Houston Astros off Juan Marichal…Future Hall of Famers Rod Carew and Tom Seaver won the Rookie of the Year awards in 1967.
