and other stories......click to listen:
He played with the Rangers from 1991 to 1999. Juan was an amazing hitter and a key component of the Rangers' divisional titles in '96, '98 and '99 plus winning the AL MVP in 1996 & 1998. Gonzalez' power totals in Texas were amazing: 296 HR & 1059 RBI from 1991 to 1999. In other words, Juan was one of the best run producers of the 1990's.
Gonzalez was traded to Detroit after the '99 season. He was never the same player due to injuries and other issues. Where is Juan now? He has declined invitations to Rangers' events and kept a low profile.
We say happy birthday to Juan Marichal, one of the greatest pitchers in major league history.
Marichal broke with the Giants in 1960 pitching a shutout against the Phillies. He went on to pitch 14 seasons with San Francisco: 238 wins, 2.84 ERA and 244 complete games.
Overall, he won 243 games after finishing with Boston in 1974 and LA in 1975.
In 1963, Marichal and Warren Spahn of the Braves locked into one of the greatest pitching duels in major league. I wrote about it here: The day Marichal and Spahn took work ethic to a higher level.
I finally had a chance to see Marichal when he played for Boston in 1974. He was an old veteran but still had that magical leg kick. it was a real treat to say that I saw him pitch even at the end of his marvelous career.
Marichal was selected to The Hall of Fame in 1983.
