Happy Reds birthday, Scott Rolen!
April 4, 1975
Scott Rolen is criminally underrated, as many third basemen are. In his 17-year career, Rolen smacked the ball out of the yard 316 times and drove in 1287 runs. He was an All-Star seven times, twice with the Reds, and took home eight Gold Glove Awards. It will be interesting to see how the BBWAA treat him when he appears on the Hall of Fame ballot next year.
