[edit] Biographical Information

Larry Hisle, who played fourteen years in the big leagues, led the 1977 American League in RBI and was third in the MVP voting in 1978.

Larry never hit less than .300 in the minors, beginning with a .433 average in 21 games with Huron in 1966. His first shot at the majors was in 1968, and in 1969 and 1970 he became a regular for the Philadelphia Phillies before spending much of 1971 and all of 1972 back in the minors.

However, he was just too good to stay in the minors and he came back to the bigs in 1973 as a regular again, after having been traded around from the Phillies to the Los Angeles Dodgers to the St. Louis Cardinals to the Minnesota Twins.

He was the hitting coach for the Toronto Blue Jays from 1992 through 1995. Larry was a high school teammate of Al Oliver.
