Chicks Dig the Long Ball: The 10 Best Post-World War II Power-Hitting Pitchers

On Saturday, the Cincinnati Reds' Micah Owings launched his third home run of the 2009 season. He also hit four home runs in 2007, putting him in a rare group of pitchers who have homered three or more times in multiple seasons.

In the last 30 years, just five players have done so: Owings, Carlos Zambrano, Mike Hampton, Tim Lollar, and Rick Rhoden.

I've decided to take a look at the top power-hitting pitchers in the post-World War II era.

The list isn't arranged by total home runs but rather a combination of how prolonged their power surge was and also their career best year.

Each slide's headline contains the career Avg./HR/RBI of each player for easy reference.

*Make Sure to proceed past No.1, as there is an Honorable Mention slide at the end*
