Happy # 70 Jeff Burroughs

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


We say happy birthday to Jeff Burroughs, the first Texas Rangers superstar.    

He was born in California on this day in 1951 and drafted by the old Washington Senators who moved to Texas in 1972. 

In Texas, he became an instant sensation:  30 HR & 85 RBI in 1973.

In 1974, he hit .301 with 25 HR & 119 RBI.    He was named the 1974 AL MVP beating out Reggie Jackson and Rod Carew.

In 1975, Jeff hit 29 HR & 94 RBI but his strikeouts jumped to 155 and batting average dropped to .226!

He was traded to Atlanta and did well, hitting 41 HR with 114 RBI in 1977.  

Overall, he retired with a .261 average, 240 HR & 831 RBI.   

My memory of Jeff is mammoth home runs!    

Jeff wrote a book for Little League coaches after retiring from baseball.
