Happy # 70 Al Oliver

We say happy # 70 to Al Oliver, a wonderful major league hitter.     

Oliver broke in with the Pirates in 1968.    He spent the next few years as one of the best hitters in the NL:   .296 in 10 years with Pittsburgh.

In 1977, he went to Texas (.319 in 4 seasons) and later to Montreal, where he won an NL batting title in 1982:  .331 average, 22 HR, 109 RBI and 204 hits.

Overall, a rather productive career:  .303, 1,328 RBI & 2,743 hits.
