Happy Birthday Shawon Dunston!!!
Shawon Dunston turns 51 years old.
One of the most likeable and recognizable faces in the Cubs’ dugout during the mid-to-late 1980′s. Shawon Dunston was a fan favorite in Chicago.
A highly skilled baseball player, Shawon Dunston enjoyed playing the game each and every day. With a huge smile as proof, it was very hard to find another player that enjoyed taking the field more than Shawon.
Whether it was at the plate, with the fans celebrating him with the ‘Shawon-O-Meter’, or in the field when he routinely turned double plays or showed off his cannon of an arm while playing at short, Shawon was electric.
Dunston played 18 years in the majors – for 6 teams. He is, and will always be a ‘Cubbie’ in my eyes!!!
Happy Birthday Mr. Dunston!!
