The second baseball I got on Saturday was from former Oriole Jim Gentile.
Gentile would have an amazing 1961 season where he would hit 46 home runs and would lead the league with 141 RBIs. He finished third in the MVP voting behind Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle (Gentile didn't stand a chance did he?).
Gentile played for only 9 seasons in the majors, but was productive for only 5 or so. That 1961 Season would be good for MVP most other years, but that year was one for the ages in Maris and Mantle's pursuit of the single season home run record.
Gentile is my 35th TTM success. I mailed to him on June 24th and got the ball back on October 15th. He was a little under a 4-month TAT.
