Happy Birthday Wade Boggs!!!

Wade Boggs turns 55 years old today!!

As a kid growing up in South Florida I had no ‘home’ team to cheer for. So I adopted several players, one of them being Wade Boggs. I was a third baseman and I batted third for a few years during my Little League career. Choosing Boggs as someone to emulate was an easy choice as he was one of the greatest hitters of the 1980′s.

Boggs’ career has been punctuated by achieving several baseball milestones – All-star appearances, Silver slugger awards, batting championships, Gold Gloves, a World Series title, 3,010 career hits, a lifetime .328 hitting average. Wade Boggs has done it all, and most of the time he did it the best!!!

Happy Birthday Mr. Boggs!!!
