Happy Birthday Tony Perez!!!
Tony Perez turns 70 years old today.
And I have to say that after seeing Mr. Perez in person several times over the last few years, he looks incredible for his age!!!
Tony Perez was a key element to the success of the Cincinnati Reds’ during the 1970’s. A veteran of 23 major league seasons, Perez spent 16 of those years with the Reds. He was a 7-time All-star, and a perennial candidate for the league’s MVP award during his prime.
Perez’s career numbers are solid. A lifetime .279 hitter, Perez collected 2,732 hits during his playing days. And while never classified as a power hitter, Perez crushed 505 doubles and 379 home runs while also amassing 1,652 RBI.
A 2-time World Series champion, and current member of the Florida Marlins management team, Tony Perez is a favorite at ’30-YOC’.
Happy Birthday Mr. Perez!!!
