Mack Jones

Jones broke in with four hits in his first game, tying the post-1900 NL mark. He hit 31 HR in his first full season (1965), finishing third in the NL in home run percentage. He teamed that year with Hank AaronEddie Mathews, Joe Torre, Felipe Alou, and Gene Oliver as the Braves set an NL record with six 20-HR men in one season. When the Braves moved to Jones’s native Atlanta in 1966 he hit 23 HR despite a shoulder injury, but his power gradually dropped off until 1969. Playing for the expansion Expos in cozy Jarry Park, he hit 22 HR and batted a career-high .270, and on April 14 he hit the first ML home run in Canada off Nelson Briles.
