Today's baseball Happy Birthday is former American League MVP Jackie Jensen.

Jackie Jensen played 11 seasons in the big leagues, starting for the New York Yankees in 1950.

Jensen was a Yankee through parts of 1950-51-52 with New York before moving on to the Washington Senators in 1952-53, and then to Boston, and famed Fenway Park, where Jensen became one of baseball's best outfielders.

Jensen drove in over 100 runs five times as a member of the BoSox, leading the A.L. in RBI three times, including a 122 RBI performance in his MVP year of 1958.

Jensen was a great all-around athlete, and was the very first person to play in the Rose Bowl Game and the World Series.

 Happy Birthday Jackie Jensen!!
