Four-Time All-Star, Norm Cash had a monster season where he won the Batting Title, On Base Percentage Title the OPS Title and slugged 41 Home Runs.  The sad thing for Cash is that he did this in 1961 where the baseball world was affixed with Roger Maris’ chase for the single season home run record.  While that was Cash’s best season, he still had a lot of good ones and would blast 373 Home Runs as a Tiger.

Cash was also a huge part of Detroit's 1968 World Series Championship, and he batted .385 in that playoff.  Over his career, he had 1,793 Hits and a Slugging Percentage of .490.
