Some More on the Clinton LumberKings-- Part 2

Still looking at the Clinton baseball teams.  LumberKings is a good name as it honors the lumber barons who put the town on the map with their timber business.

From the MWLguide.com.

Attendance Record: 1988, with 127,251

The writer's take on Clinton ballplayers who went on to have the best major league careers (year played at Clinton in parentheses)

Dave Stewart (1977)
Matt Williams (1986)
Orel Hershiser (1979)
Denny McLain (1962)

Team record for home runs:  Dick Kenworthy (1961) with 22.  Doesn't match up with the Baseball Reference stat.
