Happy #84 to new Hall of Famer Tony Oliva

We say happy #84 to Tony Oliva, the latest member of The Baseball Hall of Fame. It took a bit too long but he is in. I hope that Luis Tiant (229 wins & 3,30 ERA) joins him in the near future.

Tony won batting titles in 1964, 1965 and 1971.   Unfortunately, injuries cut short his career in the 1970s. He finished his career with a .304 average, 1917 hits, 220 Hrs & 947 Rbi.  

What if he had played 2,500 games rather than 1,676? The answer is 3,000 hits and probably one or two more batting titles.    

One of the greatest Cuban players in major league history!
