You are talking offense, I suppose, and I would have to agree. But the '61 team had so much fire power at most of the other positions that Zimmerman's meager hitting didn't matter much. I loved that team: Robby, Pinson, Coleman, Freese, Kasko, Post, Lynch, Bell. Plenty of fireworks there. Zimmerman finished up his career with Minnesota ('62 thru '68).
