baseball almanac fast facts

Juan Gonzalez was one of the most respected hitters during his career, finishing his career with one of the highest home run percentages ( Top 1,000 ) in baseball history, and during the 1990s, only four sluggers hit more home runs than Juan Gone (339 HRs); Albert Belle (351 HRs), Barry Bonds (361 HRs), Ken Griffey, Jr. (382 HRs) and Mark McGwire (405 HRs).

Juan Gonzalez collected forty-or-more homers during five different seasons (1992, 1993, 1996, 1997, 1998) that decade (1990s)! Only four American League players in baseball history have ever had more 40-homer seasons; Ken Griffey, Jr. (6x), Harmon Killebrew (8x), Alex Rodriguez (8x) and a hall of famer who did it eleven times - do you know it was? [ Answer ]

Did you that Juan Gonzalez set the Texas Rangers single season record for most RBIs (157) in 1998, the first player in franchise history to eclipse the 150-RBI mark? Did you know that he had driven in 101 runs before the All-Star Game , only the second player in baseball history with 100 RBI before the Midsummer Classic , joining Hank Greenberg ? [ MLB Sortable Rangers Stats ]

In Puerto Rico , Juan Gonzalez is known as Igor. Why? Let's ask Juan Gonzalez, "I watched wrestling all the time and I still like it. One day when I was nine, I told another guy, 'I'm Igor.' And he said,'Okay, your name is Igor from now on.' And I've been Igor since then."
