By the time that Roberto Pena got to the Brewers in 1970, he was 33 and played for the A's, Phillies, Cubs and the expansion 1969 Padres. He got around, as they used to say back then.
Nevertheless, he became very popular in Milwaukee because he hustled and played with a lot of passion. He also played all 4 infield positions! His 42 RBI in 1970 were 4th best in the team.
Bob, or Bobby as I recall, played 6 seasons and retired with a .245 average. He must have been one of the most popular .245 career hitters in major league history.
Bob was 45 when he died in 1982.
