We remember Aurelio Rodríguez (1947-2000)


We remember Aurelio Rodriguez.   He was born in Mexico on this day in 1947 and died tragically in 2000.
Aurelio broke with the Angels in 1967.    He hit 19 HRS with 83 RBI in 1970.  
After that, he was better known for his incredible glove at third base.   He finally won the Gold Glove in 1976 after Brooks Robinson of the Orioles won 16 in a row.
Overall, he hit .237, 124 HR & 648 RBI in 2,017 games.   He was a great defensive third baseman and that's he played such a long career with the Angels, Tigers & Yankees.
