Happy # 84 Rocky Colavito

Image result for rocky colavito images

Rocco Domenico Colavito was born in New York on this in 1933.   He broke with the Indians in 1955 and was hitting a lot of HR's in a few seasons.

As a kid, I remember having a 1965 Rocky Colavito card.   It was awesome to see all of those HR's on the back.   

He was quite a power hitter:   374 HR & 1,159 RBI in 1,861 games.   His best season wa 1961:   .290 average, 45 HR & 140 RBI.   He hit 4 HR in one game in 1959.

Great power hitter and one of the most popular men ever to wear the Indians' uniform.
