We say birthday to Orlando Cepeda, one of the greatest players from Puerto Rico, who was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico, on this day in 1937.
Cepeda broke with the Giants in 1958 and was NL Rookie of the Year: .312 average, 25 HR & 96 RBI.    He followed that with some great seasons, including leading the NL with 46 HR & 142 RBI in 1961.   Cepeda played with St Louis and was selected as the 1967 NL MVP.   Later, Orlando was traded to Atlanta and finished with Boston in 1974.    Overall, he hit .297 with 379 HR, 1,365 RBI over 2,124 games.    

Cepeda was inducted to The Hall of Fame in 1999.
