The 1981 American League Batting Champion is capture in this action photo after taking a swing. He was involved in the Freddie Lynn deal that brought the Lynn to the Angels. Lansford was an anomaly. He was a right handed batting champ that played for the Red Sox. Boston has produced the most batting champions in the game and most of them have been left handed. The reason they have had the most left batting champion was because of Fenway. The way Fenway is set up with almost no foul territory down the first base line, gives batters a lot of second chances and no foul ball out.
