So this was one of my trivia questions on my ESPN desk calendar this week. The only problem is that the only Cub to lead the NL in homeruns in the 1980s wasn't Kevin Mitchell like the answer states. While Mitchell did lead the NL in homers in 1989, that was with the Giants. In fact, Kevin Mitchell never even played for the Cubs. So what's the right answer? That would be The Hawk, Andre Dawson. Dawson hit an NL leading 49 homers for the Cubs in 1987 en route to winning the MVP award. Matt 1, Calendar 0.
