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!!!
