Happy Birthday Benito Santiago!!!

Benito Santiago turns 49 years old today.

Santiago was an established baseball star when he joined the Florida Marlins in 1993 for their inaugural baseball season.

Santiago was the team’s most well known player, and his Hispanic heritage made him an instant hit in with the fans and city of Miami.  Benito became an ambassador of the game in South Florida and he still makes periodic appearances associated with the team.

Santiago was a 5-time All-star, a 4-time Silver Slugger trophy winner, and the winner of three Gold Glove awards.  He also won the Rookie of the Year Award as a member of the San Diego Padres during the 1987 baseball season.
