That’s right, Roberto Alomar turns 41 years old today.
With very little publicity, Roberto Alomar had an incredible 17-season career. With a lifetime batting average of .300 alongside his 2,724 hits, Alomar was a great contact hitter and threat while on the basepaths. Alomar has 474 stolen bases to his credit and has scored 1,508 runs over the course of his career.
It seems like ‘Robby’ is destinted for Cooperstown. So here is what I give Alomar for his birthday – A new trophy case to display his : 12 consecutive all-star game appearances, 4 Silver Slugger awards, 10 Gold Gloves, and 2 World Series championship rings. I think that this gift is fitting, and I will be sure to leave a little room for his Hall of Fame plaque too!!
Happy Birthday ‘Robby’!!!
