Happy # 74 Rico Petrocelli

Happy # 74 to Rico Petrocelli, one of the most popular players to wear the Red Sox uniform.

Americo Peter Petrocelli was born in Brooklyn and broke with Boston in 1963.  He quickly became a regular and played in the 1967 & 1975 World Series.   

He split his career between shortstop (774 games) and third base (727 games).   He moved to third when Luis Aparicio joined Boston in 1970.

Rico was a big bat in the Boston lineup:  210 HR & 773 RBI over 13 years.

His big year was 1969 when he hit 40 HR.   He hit 97 HR in a 3 year span, 1969-71.

Enjoy your day Rico!
