Happy Birthday Steve Carlton!!!

Happy Birthday Steve Carlton!!!

Steve Carlton turns 67 years old today.

Steve Carlton is one of the game’s greatest pitchers of all-time.  And one of its most under-appreciated as well…

Carlton had a dominant 24-season major league baseball career.  A first ballot Hall of Famer, Carlton’s resume boasts some incredibly impressive accomplishments:

  • 4 Cy Young awards
  • 10-time All-star
  • 329 career victories
  • 4,136 strikeouts
  • 1 Gold Glove award
  • 1972 National League Triple Crown winner
  • Member of the 1967 World Series champions

See what I mean??  Not too many men that have played this game can compare.

Cheers to you, ‘Lefty’!!!  And Happy Birthday too!!!

  1. Happy Birthday! Cardinals really messed up sending you to Philly, but it worked out great for you Mr. Carlton!

  2. Carlton also won a ring with the Phillies in 1980 and one from the sidelines with the ’87 Twins. You can read more if you like on my blog:
