Happy Birthday Giancarlo Stanton!!

Happy Birthday Giancarlo Stanton!!

Giancarlo Stanton turns 25 years old today.

In a very short amount of time, Giancarlo Stanton has become the centerpiece of the Miami Marlins run production squad.  Batting anywhere from 3-5 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 2011, Stanton hit .262 in 150 games.  In 2012, he hit .290 in 123 games.  And in a down year in 2013, he hit .249.  He rebounded in 2014 with his best offensive season to date going .288/37/105 in his most consistent year.

The sport took notice of Stanton’s all-around game in 2014.  And I cannot wait to see what he does as a follow-up in 2015.

Happy Birthday Giancarlo.  Keep doing what you’re doing!!
