The 1969 Rookies of the Year were far from unanimous winners. 9 different players received votes. Ted Sizemore got 58% of the vote among 4 others in the National League. Lou Piniella received a mere 38% of the AL vote, beating out the 3 other AL candidates. Both Piniella and Sizemore would go on to have productive MLB careers and both of them received MVP votes in 1969. However, strictly by looking at their numbers arguments could be made for other candidates.
