Happy Birthday Fred Lynn!!!
Fred Lynn turns 61 years old today.
I have always had an affinity for Fred Lynn. He broke onto the baseball scene in 1975 and took the sport by storm. He did this during the year of my birth, and I have always enjoyed learning more about things that happened in 1975!!
Fred Lynn quietly put together a very solid 17-season career as a professional baseball player. It’s amazing that someone playing for some of baseball’s most popular teams(The Red Sox and Orioles) could stay under the radar but Lynn was able to do so. While media and fan attention went to his teammates, Lynn contributed solidly. During his first full season in the major leagues in 1975, Fred Lynn won the Rookie of the Year award as well as the Most Valuable Player award. Not too shabby, for a rookie huh??? I’d say that it’s rather impressive!!!
Happy Birthday Mr. Lynn!!
