Happy Birthday Dave Stewart!!!
Dave Stewart turns 57 years old today!!
As solid of a starting pitcher as there was during the late 1980’s, Dave Stewart was the picture of consistency and dominance.
From 1987-1990, Stewart amassed 84 wins and 35 losses – good for a 71 win percentage! He put the Oakland A’s team on his shoulders and carried them to the playoffs in each of those seasons, culminating in 3 trips to the World Series. And in those 3 attempts at winning the grand prize, Stewart and his teammates were victorious in 1989 when they swept the Giants.
Dave Stewart is and will always be one of the pitchers that I enjoyed watching in my youth. His dedication to the sport, and his professional approach were admirable. A soft-spoken man off of the field, on the field he was strictly business and his silent leadership resulted in 5 trips for his teams to the World Series.
Happy Birthday Mr. Stewart. A true class act!!!
