Muhammad Ali Supporters
As Yaz chased the batting title, Muhammad Aii was at the center of controversy because of his refusal to fight in Vietnam. Ali, a Muslim, stated that the war was against his religious beliefs. He was arrested in June and his boxing license was suspended. He did, however, have his fair share of supporters who were against the war and agreed with Ali's objections. His case eventually went to the Supreme Court, where the guilty verdict was overturned.
