Happy # 77 Graig Nettles

Related image
We remember Graig Nettles who was born in San Diego on this day in 1944. Nettles broke with Minnesota in 1967 and was traded to Cleveland where he started to hit a few home runs.   

In 1973, he became a Yankee and that's where he had some wonderful years:  250 HR & 834 RBI in 1,539 games.   

Nettles was also a superb third baseman winning a couple of Gold Gloves Awards and a key part of the New York teams that played in the 1976, 1977, 1978 & 1981 World Series.    

He retired with 390 HR & 1,314 RBI.
