Happy Birthday Livan Hernandez!!!
Livan Hernandez turns 39 years old today!!!
Livan was the primary reason that the Florida Marlins won the World Series title in 1997. If it wasn’t for his amazing pitching in the NLCS and World Series who knows if the Marlins would have been able to prevail. I can still remember Livan screaming ‘I Love You Miami’ as he put the team on his back on the way to the title.
He had a very solid major league career, and he certainly left his mark on the sport and the Marlins franchise.
In 17 big league seasons, Livan compiled a 178-177 record in 474 starts. He has a career ERA of 4.44 with 1,976 strikeouts and 1,066 walks. Livan is a 2-time All-Star, a Silver Slugger Award winner, and a runner-up for the Rookie Of The Year Award.
Happy Birthday to the 1997 World Series MVP!!!
