Happy Birthday Octavio ‘Cookie’ Rojas!!

Happy Birthday Octavio ‘Cookie’ Rojas!!

‘Cookie’ Rojas turns 73 years old today.

Most baseball fans know Cookie Rojas as the former 5-time All-Star that spent most of his career playing for the Kansas City Royals and Philadelphia Phillies.  But if you live in South Florida, like Cookie and I do, then you know him as the radio commentator for the Spanish audience of the Miami Marlins.

Rojas put in a solid 16-year big league career.  A utility player, Rojas played every position on the field at some point during those 16 season, including 7 at catcher and even 1 at pitcher in a relief effort back in 1967.

The 5-time All-Star collected 1,660 hits during his playing days en route to a career batting average of .263.  A very highly skilled hitter, Rojas was far from a slugger(just 54 homers), but his incredible ‘eye’ at the plate led to him striking out just 489 times in 6,871 plate appearances.

Happy Birthday ‘Cookie’!   See you at the ballpark!!!

15 TTM Autograph Attempts Are Out In The Mail…

Now that my Spring Training attempts at TTM are over, I wanted to jump right into the regular season.  I probably won’t send out a lot to active players but there are a ton of veterans still hanging out around the league disguised as coaches, announcers, and managers.  You better believe I am going to go after them with some gusto.  I’ve also got a nice stack of former Cubs that I want to try to get autographs from as well.

So here is my first attempt for some ‘regular season’ autographs.

The guys – Tom Browning, Damon Berryhill, Scott Sanderson, Ken Holtzman, Don Zimmer, Greg Gagne, Dan Gladden, Doug Dascenzo, Cris Carpenter, Terry Steinbach, Billy Hatcher, Jim Presley, Tommy Hutton, Cookie Rojas, and Dave Martinez.

As always, I will be sure to post my successes with you as they roll in.  And pics too of course!!!
