Guerrero's Magic Month

1985 was an incredible year for Pedro Guerrero. He hit .320 with 33 home runs, 87 RBI's and 99 runs scored. On top of that, he lead the league with a .422 OBP, a .577 slugging percentage, .999 OPS and a OPS+ of 181. His efforts helped propel the team to a division championship.

The topping on the cake, though, was his incredible month of June. Guerrero batted .344, drove in 26 runs and OPS'd an had incredible 1.297. He also slugged a LA Dodger record 15 home runs (also tying a franchise record with Duke Snider established in 1953). Below are three of those home run balls from June. They come directly from Pedro.
First is the homerun ball from 6/23/85-it was Pedro's 12th in the month of June and tied the Dodger's record set by Frank Howard in 1962. Second is from 6/24/85 and was his 13th homer of the month breaking the Dodger's record set by Frank Howard. Third is his 14th homerun ball of the month hit on 6/26/85.
