Career highlights and awards

Jimmie Randolph Hall (born March 17, 1938 in Mount Holly, North Carolina) is a former Major League Baseball outfielder and left-handed batter who played for the Minnesota Twins (1963-66), California Angels (1967-68), Cleveland Indians (1968-69), New York Yankees (1969), Chicago Cubs (1969-70) and Atlanta Braves (1970).

An All-Star in 1964 and 1965, Hall was part of the powerful Minnesota line-up that include Bob Allison, Harmon Killebrew and Tony Oliva. His career-high 33 home runs in his rookie season ranked fourth in the AL in 1963. He added a .260 of batting average, 80 runs batted in, and a .521 of slugging percentage, finishing third in the Rookie of the Year selection. He had his best season in 1965, when he reached career highs in batting average (.285), RBI (86), doubles (25) and stolen bases (14). In eight seasons, Hall batted .254 with 121 home runs, 391 RBI, 387 runs, 100 doubles, 24 triples, and 38 stolen bases in 963 games.

On May 2, 1964, Minnesota became the third club in the MLB history to hit four consecutive home runs in the same inning, from Oliva, Allison, Hall and Killebrew as the Twins 5-4 victory over the Kansas City Athletics. Hall's 33 home runs in 1963 still stand as the AL record for first-year players (with not even a game of prior major league experience), topping the mark of 31 home runs set by Ted Williams in 1939.
