Happy Birthday Robin Yount!!!

Happy Birthday Robin Yount!!!

Robin Yount turns 58 years old today.

Everything Robin Yount did, he did exceptionally well.  A hitter for power, a hitter for average, a base runner, you name it and he did it very well.  Yount was an offensive machine for 20 years as a member of the Milwaukee Brewers.  In 20 big league seasons, Yount finished his career with 3,142 hits.  With those hits came 251 home runs and 271 stolen bases.  And if you add to that his 1,406 RBI and 1,632 runs scored you’ve got a potent mixture that creates the perfect offensive threat.

A 2-time MVP winner with 5 more Top 18 finises, Yount was widely accepted as one of baseball’s best players for 2 decades.  Yount is a 3-time All-star and a Gold Glove winner as well.  Yount reached the World Series in 1982 and lost to the Cardinals in 7 games.  In that series, Yount hit an amazing .414 as he collected 12 hits with 6 RBI.

Happy Birthday Mr. Yount!!!

  1. Great player to have watched growing up. Never any grief, never any questions about his playing integrity. Ryan Braun should use Yount’s career as a model.

  2. Grew up listening to Bob Uecker and watching Robin Yount and the Crew!!! He is one of the best players of the 80′s and probably one of the most down to earth players you will ever see.
