In that season, Lynn led the AL in Runs (103), Doubles (47), Slugging (.566), and OPS (.967) with a Batting Average of .331 and 21 Home Runs. The Centerfielder also captured his first of four Gold Gloves, and with his help, the Red Sox won the Pennant. Lynn continued to play well, earning All-Stars annually from 1975 to 1980, and in 1979, he would have a better year than his MVP winning one. Lynn would have career-highs in Hits (177), Home Runs (39), RBIs (122), and in all three components of the Slash Line (.333/.423/.637). Notably, those last three stats were first overall in the AL. He finished fourth in MVP voting, but that year it was one by a far inferior Don Baylor of California. Lynn played one more year for Boston before being
dealt to the Angels after the 1980 season.As a member of the Red Sox, Lynn would secure 944 Hits, 124 Home Runs, and a Slash Line of .308/.383/.520.
