Happy Birthday Juan Marichal!!!
Juan Marichal turns 76 years old today.
In photographs, I find Juan Marichal to be one of the most polarizing pitchers ever. An extremely photogenic player, Juan and that incredible wind-up will stop you dead in your tracks whether you are looking at pics on the web, flipping through pages of a magazine, or in my case diving through boxes of baseball cards.
I don’t know that much about Marichal, but from the several books that I have read, he is regarded very highly by some of the greatest hitters and pitchers from his era – and that goes a long way with me.
Happy Birthday Mr. Marichal!!!
