Happy # 74 Ken Singleton


We say happy birthday to Ken Singleton who was born in New York on this day in 1947.  He is one of my all my time favorite Orioles.

Ken came to Baltimore in 1975 in one of the biggest trades in the team's history:  Dave McNally and Richie Coggins to Montreal for Ken Singleton and Mike Torrez.  

Singleton was one of the key players in the teams that won the AL pennant in 1979 and World Series in 1983.

His best season was probably 1979:  .295 average, 35 HR & 111 RBI.    
Overall, Ken hit .282 with 246 HR & 1,065 RBI.   He was also a three-time All-Star (1977, 1979, 1981). 

After baseball, Ken went into the TV and radio booth.
