Pudge Rodriguez turns 38 years old today.
Still a favorite of all Florida Marlins fans, Pudge Rodriguez should go down as one of the greatest players from his era!!
With a resume that includes 1 Most Valuable Player Award, 7 Silver Slugger awards, 13 Gold Gloves, and 14 All-star games, one has to wonder where Pudge ranks in the conversation about the game’s greatest catchers.
Through the 2009 baseball season, Rodriguez has tallied 2,711 hits, 1,308 runs scored, 305 home runs, 1,264 RBI, and he even has 125 stolen bases to his credit.
As he continues to climb towards a few more baseball milestones, it seems like his election into baseball’s Hall of Fame is inevitable. One thing is for certain: He has my vote!!!
Happy Birthday Pudge!!!
