Oh Could Rico Carty Hit!

December 30, 2018

Rico Carty was one of the greatest hitters I ever saw play.

If there was a hitter’s Hall of Fame, Rico Carty would be a serious candidate.

Once in a July 4th, Sunday night game, in 1976, I believe 14 years before regularly scheduled such games, Carty homered to get the Indians within a run of the Yankees, who held on to win the game and eventually the American League Pennant.

Yankees’ broadcaster praised Carty after the home run. “Oh can he hit!” Mr. Rizzuto remarked.

That was high praise from a baseball great. It also was well deserved as Rico Carty could really hit.
