Happy Birthday Johnny Damon!!!
Johnny Damon turns 41 years old today.
While Johnny Damon is not named with the sport’s greatest players, he has certainly put himself into the category of ‘Winner’. And some of the sport’s biggest stars cannot make that claim.
Relatively unknown until he joined the Red Sox, Damon was a quiet player that toiled around in both Kansas City and Oakland for the first 7 years of his career. During that time, her perfected his craft as a solid hitter with a knack for collecting doubles and stolen bases.
When Damon arrived in Boston in 2002, his ability on the field as well as personality shined and he soon became a fan favorite. Damon helped the Sox win the World Series title in 2004 and his new-found fame garnered him 2 All-Star team selections and MVP consideration.
Damon moved on to the Yankees in 2006, and again he helped them reach the pinnacle of the sport in 2009 as the Yankees collected another World Series title.
Johnny Damon has proven to be a very skilled baseball player. His consistency on offense is remarkable, and his time in the major leagues has been relatively injury free – a true credit to a player that played as hard as he did!
Here’s to Johnny Damon!! Happy Birthday!!!
