1976 Season Notes & Press Clippings
- Dave belted three homers and set Mets' club record with 8 RBI's as New Yorkers mauled Dodgers, 11-0 at Los Angeles, June 4, 1976. Paul Olden, a stringer for Associated Press Radio and currently a radio announcer for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, asked Dodgers' Manager Tommy Lasorda "What is your opinion of Kingman's performance?" Check out the whole story at the Dodger Blues web site or Click here to download Lasorda's articulate & censored answer! (size = 725k)
- Had 30 home runs before the All-Star break--the 8th player to accomplish this feat (Maris '61, Killebrew '64, Howard '69, R. Jackson '69, McCovey '69, Stargelll '71, '73, Schmidt '76).
- Was named to National League All-Star team for the first time in his career. He went 0-for-2 with a strikeout.
