In 1975 George Foster emerged as the Cincinnati Reds starting left fielder. Foster’s big bat helped power the Reds “Big Red Machine” as Cincinnati won back to back World Championships in 1975-1976. In 1977 Foster was the NL’s MVP and he led the league in homers in 1977 and 1978. In the strike-shortened 1981 season, Foster hit .295 with 22 home runs to lead all left fielders as the Reds won a baseball-best 66 games. His offensive output was rewarded with his first and only Silver Slugger Award. This award was given to the best offensive players at each position by the Hillerich & Bradsby Company, makers of the Louisville Slugger. This imposing award measures 11" x 34.5" and features a full-size silver plated bat mounted on a wooden stand bearing the Louisville Slugger logo. An engraved plaque is affixed below giving Foster’s name and position along with the other winners of the award from that season. The award shows some wear from age and display. A great piece that showcases George Foster’s value as a founding member of the Big Red Machine that dominated the National League from the mid 1970s through the early 1980s.
