Sir Rodney

My tribute to HOFer-1991, Rod Carew

10 Interesting Rod Carew Facts:
1. Carew collected his 3,000th career hit (a single off Frank Viola) on August 4, 1984 - the same day that Tom Seaver won his 300th career game.
2. Alan Bannister called Carew "the only player who can go 4-for-3".
3. He was the best bunter of his generation, and he stole home 17 times.
4. Toiling for the poor Twins teams and the hard-luck Angels, Carew collected more hits than any player who never played in a World Series.
5. Rodney Cline Carew was named after Dr. Rodney Cline, who delivered baby Carew while on a train in the Panama Canal Zone, on October 1, 1945.
6. Born in the Panama Canal Zone, he learned to hit tennis balls and wads of paper taped into balls.
7. When he was 16 his mother took the family to New York City to live with Rod's godmother.
8. Carew grew up not far from the old Polo Grounds, and near Yankee Stadium.
9. In 1976 his string of four straight batting titles was halted when he lost the crown on the final day of the season to George Brett.
10. In 1977, faced with the overwhelming evidence that his six-time batting champ was the best hitter in baseball, notorious cheapskate Twin's owner Calvin Griffith voluntarily gave Carew a $100,000 bonus!
