(Before It's News)

We say happy # 64 to Jim Rice, one of the best power hitters of our generation.   He was selected to The Hall of Fame in 2009.

Rice hit 20 homers 11 times.   He drove 1,171 runs over 11 seasons.  Rice was an AL All-Star 8 times.   

On top of that power, he hit .300 in seven seasons and finished in the top five in the AL MVP voting six times.     

He retired with a .298 batting average.

Also, Rice hit 39-plus homers four times, the most of anyone who played in the AL during his time period.    

Rice’s most impressive season, without question, was 1978, when he hit .315 with 213 hits, 15 triples, 46 homers, 139 RBIs and 406 total bases.
