Fact: An integral member of the “Big Red Machine,” George Foster won the NL MVP in 1977, belting 52 home runs and amassing 149 RBI — and just missed the Triple Crown after finishing fourth in batting average. When he retired in 1986 after five turbulent seasons with the Mets, his $2.8 million salary was the highest in baseball. One of the most dominant sluggers of his era, Foster grounded out to short in his only at-bat of an old-timers’ game in 1988.
