Hall's career-high 33 HR in his rookie season ranked fourth in the AL in 1963. The
Twins' centerfielder by default, he didn't cover enough ground but gave Minnesota
a powerful outfield trio when he played with Bob Allison and Harmon Killebrew or
Tony Oliva. His best year came in the Twins' 1965 AL championship season, when he
reached career highs in BA (.285), RBI (86), steals (14), and doubles (25). After
dropping to .239 in 1966, he was traded to the Angels, for whom he had one more decent
season before declining. He played for five teams in his last three seasons.
