Happy Birthday, Rob Deer

RobDeer.jpgIn two-and-a-half years with the Tigers (1991 through mid ’93), Rob Deer, #45 in your scorecard, hit 71 home runs and drove in 167 runs. He also struck out 426 times — that’s 37 percent of his 1,164 at bats.

Still, it was fun to watch him swing the bat with all his might every time up. And, oh, when he made contact…

Let’s wish Rob Deer a Happy 48th Birthday.

  1. Sorry, I never enjoyed Rob Deer as a Tiger. I grew up hating, mortally loathing the Brewers. So, when he came here with his big strikeout swing, I was very unhappy. But, I’m sure he’s a terrific individual, so Happy Birthday!
