Happy birthday, Bobby Valentine

Happy birthday to Bobby Valentine, who turns 59 today.

Most of you know Bobby V. managed the Rangers for quite some time in the late-80s and early-90s, when Tom Grieve was the g.m., but you may not know that he was also a stud prospect back in the day, the #5 pick overall in the draft whose career was short-circuited when, as a 23 year old Angels outfielder, he got his spikes caught in a chain in the outfield and suffered a compound fracture of his leg.

He also finished up his career with the Mariners, making him yet another former Ranger with Seattle ties.
