Chris Chambliss will forever go down in Yankee lore for his pennant winning home run against the Kansas City Royals in 1976.
When you think of Chambliss, you picture fans smothering him on the field in his journey to home plate as the Yankees dramatically entered the Fall Classic. However, his overall body of work in the Bronx is often overlooked. He provided a more than serviceable bat in his seven seasons, hitting .282 with 79 homers.
He added a Gold Glove in the Yankees’ 1978, proving he was more than just a presence at the dish.
