Happy # 78 to Rico Petrocelli, one of the most popular players to wear the Red Sox uniform.
Americo Peter Petrocelli was born in Brooklyn on this day in 1943. He broke with Boston in 1963. He quickly became a regular and played in the 1967 & 1975 World Series.
He split his career between shortstop (774 games) and third base (727 games). Rico moved to third when Luis Aparicio joined Boston in 1970.
Petrocelli was a big bat in the Boston lineup: 210 HR & 773 RBI over 13 years.
He hit 40 HR in 1969 and 97 HR over a 3 year span, 1969-71.
Enjoy your day Rico!
