MLB Picks Today From Doc's Sports Service
Doc’s Sports started in 1971. That was the year that the Pittsburgh Pirates and Baltimore Orioles (two doormat organizations today) met in the World Series, with the Pirates winning in a seven-game thriller. The highest paid player in the league, Carl Yastrzemski, made $167,000 and the average salary for all Major Leaguers was just $12,000. Joe Torre, then a third baseman for the Cardinals, won the MVP. The American League won an All-Star Game in which Hank Aaron, Johnny Bench, Roberto Clemente, Reggie Jackson, Harmon Killebrew and Frank Robinson all hit home runs. Oh yeah: 1971 was also the same year George Brett and Mike Schmidt each got drafted. Get more MLB picks each and every day at Doc’s Sports. A trusted name in sports handicapping since 1971.
