Best Season: 1966
Maz played every game and committed just eight errors. His fielding average of .992 was one of the best in history, and he led the league in chances, assists, and putouts by a second baseman as well. Offensively he hit essentially his career average (.262), with a low OBP (.296 - basically his career average), but he hit 16 homers and had 45 extra-base hits, one of his best totals ever.
William Stanley Mazeroski was born on September 5, 1936, in Wheeling, WV.
