Happy # 70 Al Bumbry

Al Bumbry was born in Frederick, Virginia on this day in 1947.    

He broke with the Orioles in September 1972 and was the AL Rookie of the Year in 1973 (.337 average, 11 triples and 23 stolen bases)

After a couple of off seasons, Bumbry took over in center field and had some very productive seasons, such as .317 in 1977 and 318 in 1980.

He was a member of the Orioles that won the 1979 AL title and the 1983 World Series.

Bumbry retired in 1985 with a .281 average, 254 stolen bases, 1,422 hits in 1,496 games.

My memories of Bumbry are that he played hard and was very popular with the fans.
