Happy Birthday Giancarlo Stanton!!
Giancarlo Stanton turns 23 years old today.
In a very short amount of time, Giancarlo Stanton has become the centerpiece of the Miami Marlins run production unit. Batting anywhere from 4-6 in the batting order, Stanton has been the team’s main source of home run and RBI production.
While some may label Stanton as a ‘Slugger’ due to his ability to hit the ball 500+ feet, he has also shown the ability to learn while at the plate and use what he is learning to become a more patient and skilled hitter. In 2010, Stanton hit .262 in 150 games. In 2011, he hit .290 in 123 games.
Happy Birthday Giancarlo. Keep doing what you’re doing!!
