Happy Baseball Birthday. .. Robert Fick

Today we say  a Happy Baseball Birthday to former big league ballplayer Robert Fick.

Robert Charles John Fick was born on March 15, 1974, in Torrence, California.

Robert was selected  in the 5th round of the 1996 amatuer baseball  draft out of California State Univeristy Northridge.

Robert made his big league debut for the Tigers on September 19, 1998, starting a 10 year big league career with the Tigers, Braves, Devil Rays, Padres, and Nationals.

Robert Fick collected  613 hits in the big leagues,  but my favorite is the one he hit in the 8th inning on September  27, 1999.

His GRAND SLAM home run hit the right field roof at Tiger Stadium, giving the Tigers one final send off at the old ball park.

That HR by Robert Fick was the LAST HIT EVER COLLECTED at THE CORNER... at old Tiger Briggs Navin Bennet Park.

Happy 41st  Birthday Robert Fick!
