Tony Oliva

November 30, 2018

One of my favorite players is Tony Oliva.

He was a great hitter and won three American League batting crowns.

He won consecutive batting crowns in 1964 and 1965.

Six years later, Pedro “Tony” Oliva won another in 1971.Oh could he hit!

Tony deserves serious consideration for the Baseball Hall of Fame.

He was that good!
