Happy Cinco de Mayo...5/5/2016

Today is May 5th, 2016...a.k.a Cinco de Mayo.

While I'm no drinker, I'm all for celebrating great achievements, especially in baseball.

So  since it's May 5th, I give you the greatest Number 5 in the history of the Detroit Tigers, Hall of Famer Hank Greenberg.

Hank Greenberg hit 58 home runs in 1938, led the American League in RAISING three times, and was the 1935 and 1940 A.L. Most Valuable Player, the first player to win the MVP at two different positions... First Base in '35, Left Field in '40.

Upon his retirement Greenberg held every power hitting batting record for the Tigers, including 306 home runs, despite missing four years to service in Word War II.

Have a great time today....and please, be safe.

Play Ball!
