Cubs Trivia:

Which Cubs second baseman won the National League Rookie of the Year in 1962?

I still have a 1963 Cubs media guide with his autograph (along with most of the other players that year, including Brock, Santo, Williams, Banks). It's the coolest piece of baseball memorabilia that I have.

Man, how in hell did Ken Hubbs win the ROY in 1962? He was awful! Led the league in K's, had a sub-.300 OBP and a sub-.350 SLG?! That's good for an OPS+ of only 70!

I think Warner is still alive... but wouldn't know how to go about tracking him down now. Also couldn't get Ellis Burton to sign. Every other player pictured in the guide signed. 1966 Guide is the other one I still have. All signed but Adolfo Phillips.

Maybe the rest of that year's rookie crop were even awfuller?

Man, how in hell did Ken Hubbs win the ROY in 1962? He was awful! Led the league in K's, had a sub-.200 OBP and a sub-.350 SLG?! That's good for an OPS+ of only 70!

He mainly won it with his glove. As I recall, he set the record for consecutive errorless games by a 2nd baseman that stood for a long time. I often wondered how his career would have played out. He did have some power and was very young. Probably were better off with Beckert though.

I just looked it up... Hubbs got 19 1st place votes out of 20. Donn Clendenon got the other vote. Hubbs did win the Gold Glove award that year... out polling Bill Mazeroski.
