Joe Rudi #586

I always remember Joe Rudi as the smooth centerfielder on those World Champion A’s from the mid 1970s. Because it was a  more pitching era, it has been forgotten how good of player, hitter, fielder that Rudi was. Here he is depicted as a Boston Red Sox (and looking very old even though he was about 35 at the time – he looks like he is in his 50’s).

Back Facts: Middle name is Oden…Leads all active players with 12 grand slam HR.
