Happy Baseball Birthday! Akil Baddoo

Happy Baseball Birthday! best wishes go out to Detroit Tigers outfielder Akil Baddoo, who turns a very young 23 today.

My favorite card of Akil Baddoo, his 2021 Topps Living Set card.

Hitting a HR on the first pitch you see in the big leagues is pretty darn special.

This kid has been that spark the organization has needed for quite a few years now, and he's one of those players that you don't ignore when he's at bat.

Who's been that spark for your favorite ballclub

Akil should be back later this week, probably this weekend, after spending time on the IL after crashing into center fielder Derek Hill last week in Baltimore. 

Have a great week, and, as always, remember to keep kind to one another.

Happy Baseball Birthday! , Akil Baddoo

Play BALL! ⚾️

  1. Apparently his father's from Ghana. So that explains his interesting name.
