Righty swinging outfielder Greg “The Bull” Luzinski was a masher for the Phillies. He played in 1,289 games in his 11 years for the Phillies and he was 1,299 of 4,630 (.281 avg, .852 OPS) with 618 runs scored, 223 homers, 811 RBIs and 29 stolen bases. Luzinski finished 2nd in the MVP Voting in the National League in both 1975 and 1977. In 1975, Luzinski played in 161 games in which he was 179 of 596 (.300 avg, .934 OPS) with 85 runs scored, 34 homers, 120 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. In 1977, Luzinski played in 149 games in which he was 171 of 554 (.309 avg, .988 OPS) with 99 runs scored, 39 homers, 130 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. Luzinski is #6 in Phillies’ history with his 223 homers and he is also #10 in RBIs in franchise history with 811 of them. Luzinski was a very underrated player in his time with the Phillies and he was literally as strong as a bull.
