Greg Brock

The man who replaced Steve Garvey at first base for the Dodgers had impossible press notices to live up to. Called “the best power-hitting prospect the Dodgers have had since Duke Snider” after breaking home run records at Albuquerque and San Antonio, Brock most resembled Snider in his inability to hit lefthanded pitching. After being traded to the Brewers, Brock cut down his stroke and raised his average at the expense of some power.
