Making it in the majors: the best MLB rookie seasons

[post_page_title]Walt Dropo[/post_page_title]
Year: 1950
Team: Boston Red Sox
If Walt Dropo is remembered, it’s for his rookie season, seeing as the rest of his career was lacklustre compared to his first season in the bigs. In 1950, Dropo recorded 144 RBI (a major league high) while hitting .322/.378/.583 for the Sox. He knocked 34 homers out of the park and added another 101 runs and 180 hits, and his 326 total bases was the most in the American League. Unfortunately for Dropo, he had a hard time reaching such numbers as his career continued.
