1964 – Roberto Hernandez (Pitcher – 2001-02)

Happy Birthday!

 

Did You Know: You probably remember that Roberto Hernandez came to the Royals in the ‘Johnny Damon’ trade, but that trade was a bit more complicated than that and involved three teams…

The Royals catcher A.J. Hinch? SS Angel Berroa and cash from the A’s? and Roberto from the Devil Rays; the A’s receive P Cory Lidle from the Devil Rays? and OF Johnny Damon? IF Mark Ellis? and a player to be named from the Royals; and the Devil Rays receive OF Ben Grieve and a player to be named from the A’s. Did you get all that?…

Roberto would later go on to record his 300th save with the Royals on May 25, 2002 – only the 15th pitcher to ever reach that milestone.
