Frank Robinson won the MVP in 1961 while with the first real "Big Red Machine" and then after he switched over to the AL he won the MVP in 1966 with the Baltimore Orioles.

 

NEXT QUIZ...................Sandy Koufax set the National League record for Strikeouts in the 1961 season with 269. Whose mark did he beat and how long had that record stood before Koufax beat it in 1961 ?
