.320 average, 52 home runs, 149 runs batted in
Before the steroids era, only one player topped 50 home runs after Willie Mays in 1965: George Foster in 1977. The Reds slugger also knocked in 149 runs - the most since Tommy Davis in 1962. But even though Foster hit a career-best .320 in 1977, he was still well shy of Dave Parker's .338 average. Foster's salary during his monster 1977 season: $166,667.
