Did you know that Alex Johnson was the first Angels hitter in franchise history with a 200-hit season, starting the "club" in 1970 , when he collected six triples, fourteen home runs, twenty-six doubles, and one-hundred fifty-six singles? Since Johnson, only one additional righty has had 200-or-more hits in an Angels uniform - do you know who it was? [ Answer ]

On October 1, 1970 , Alex Johnson went 2-for-3 at the plate, in the last game of the regular season , raising his batting average to .3289, passing future hall of famer Carl Yastrzemski (.3286), and winning the batting championship , the first (and through today, the only) batting title ever won by an Angels player!
