Happy Birthday Lenny Dykstra!!
Lenny Dykstra turns 49 years old today!!
As one of the grittiest players to play the game in the 1980’s and 90’s, you couldn’t help but enjoy watching Dykstra suit up each and every day. With an unparalleled style, ‘Nails’ was the supreme competitor and often put his body on the line solely in the effort to help his team win.
In 12 seasons in the big leagues, Dykstra had a career batting average of .285 while scoring 802 runs and stealing 285 bases. His efforts assisted the New York Mets in winning the World Series in 1986.
Dykstra has fallen on some hard times in the last few years, but the strong and vibrant images of him enjoying and playing the game he loved are what remain with this fan!!
Happy Birthday ‘Nails’!!!
