Game 161 | June 9, 1968 | Frank Howard
An All-American in both basketball and football at Ohio State, Howard was one of the most intimidating players in major league baseball history. Standing 6-8 and weighing close to 300 pounds, he was the National League Rookie of the Year with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1960. Traded to Washington before the 1965 season, over the next seven years he hit 237 home runs, the most by any player in Washington team history. In one week in May, just two weeks before his Dunkers appearance, he hit an astonishing 10 home runs in 20 at-bats.
