Happy # 75 Al Oliver

We say happy birthday to Al Oliver who was born in Ohio on this day in 1946.     

Oliver broke in with the Pirates in 1968.    He spent the next few years as one of the best hitters in the NL:   .296 in 10 years with Pittsburgh.

In 1977, he went to Texas (.319 in 4 seasons) and later to Montreal, where he won an NL batting title in 1982:  .331 average, 22 HR, 109 RBI and 204 hits.

Overall, a rather productive career:  .303, 1,328 RBI & 2,743 hits.
