Happy Birthday Charlie Hough!!!

Happy Birthday Charlie Hough!!!

Charlie Hough turns 66 years old today.

Charlie Hough can be remembered for several things from his 25-year career.  216 wins/216 losses…  1986 All-star game…  3 World Series losses… Serving up one of Reggie Jackson’s 1977 WS home runs…

But for me, the name Charlie Hough represents Florida Marlins history.  Hough was the starting pitcher on Opening Day in 1993, the first year of the Florida Marlins.  No matter what the result was, a 6-3 win over Orel Hershiser and the Los Angeles Dodgers, Hough is a baseball legend for Marlins fans.

Happy Birthday Mr. Hough!!!

Signing Results – Charlie Hough – MUST READ!!!

Signing Results – Charlie Hough – MUST READ!!!

As I continue to try to honor and prolong the memory of the original Florida Marlins, it does not get much better than this!!

Way back in 1993, Charlie Hough was the starting pitcher for the first game in the team’s history.

A veteran of the sport, who had seen three decades of major league activity, Hough kicked off the inaugural season for ‘The Fish’ on April 5, 1993.

And now, I have a very nice and special signed baseball to commemorate that historic event in Marlins team history.

Have a look:


And the inscription that I requested too!!!

When one of my buddies from an autographing website that I frequent was taking orders for a signing with Hough, Charlie was involved because he was one of the three pitchers (he was number three) to give up the three home runs to Reggie Jackson in the 1977 World Series.

And as historic as that amazing event was, I choose to remember Mr. Hough as the Opening Day pitcher during the Marlins’ first game instead.

Thank you for your help Chris.  And ‘Thank You’ Mr. Hough!!!

Happy Birthday Charlie Hough!!!

Groudbreaking Pics From The Future Home Of The Florida Marlins

This event was open to the public and I am kind of kicking myself for not making more of an effort to try to attend.  This is the first ‘real’ step when it comes to the construction of the Marlins’ new home.  Just 32 months from now construction will be done and we will be able to enjoy baseball during the 2012 season in this state-of-the-art baseball stadium.

Here are a few pics from today’s groundbreaking ceremony:

I heard on the local sports radio station, 790 The Ticket, that Charlie Hough and Benito Santiago were on hand to throw out and catch the first ‘official’ pitch today.  I am dying to find a picture of that and when I do I will share it with all of you.

Charlie Hough Autograph TTM Success!!!

31 days was all that it took for Charlie Hough to return these great autographs to me.  I’ve wanted to go after Mr. Hough for a while now but was waiting until I secured a card from his days with the Marlins before I tried.
