We say happy # 53 to Pete Incaviglia, who was born on this day in Long Beach, CA.
Pete jumped from Oklahoma State to the Texas Rangers in 1986. He hit 30 HR & 88 RBI as a rookie. Pete became a real fan favorite on that Texas team that challenged the Angels to the AL West title.
He hit another 27 the next year. Overall, he hit 124 HR in 5 seasons with Texas. Pete was traded to Detroit and bounced around a few teams.
In 1993, Pete hit 24 HR with the NL champ Phillies.
As I recall, he hit long home runs.
