Clark Bar is one of the few power hitters on the Cardinals

Jack Clark is the starting first baseman and cleanup hitter for St. Louis on the NES version of RBI Baseball. Clark has a ton of power and is the only starter on the Cardinals that is a legimate home run threat. In fact, because of the disparity of his power compared to his teammates, Clark may be the most important hitter for his team in all of RBI.
