We remember Tony Conigliaro (1945-1990)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Tony Conigliaro was born in Revere, Massachusetts, on this day in 1945.    

Tony C broke with Boston in 1964 and hit 24 HR in 111 games.   He followed that with 32 & 28 HR the next seasons.    Without a doubt, Tony C was destined to be a super power hitter.   He was also a right handed hitter at Fenway Park, the perfect place for his swing.    
In August 1967, Tony Conigliaro was hit by a pitch and his career would never be the same.      Tony C, as he was known at the time, was hitting .267 with 20 HR & 67 RBI in 95 games.   He was out for the rest of the year and missed all of 1968 too.    Tony C also missed the 1967 World Series!
Tony came back in 1969 and did very well in 1970 with 36 HR & 116 RBI.     Unfortunately, he was out of the game by 1971.    
sad story.   He had the personality and power to be one of the all time Red Sox players but never recovered from that eye injury.    Tony C was the only teenager in MLB history to hit 25 home runs in a season, as well as the youngest player in American League history to reach 100 career home runs.
Tony died in 1990.
