Happy # 70 Bert Blyleven

We say happy birthday to Bert Blyleven who was born on this day in 1951.  We also remember one of the best curve balls in baseball history.   

Blyleven was born in Zeist, Netherlands and raised in Southern California.  

Bert was 19 when he broke into the majors with the Twins in 1970.   Overall, he won 287 games with a 3.31 career ERA & 3,701 strikeouts.     Blyleven was also a workhorse with 4,970 innings pitched and 242 complete games.

Blyleven went into the Hall of Fame in 2011.   A great pitcher!   He remains a fan favorite in the Twin Cities.
