Always Rosy, a two-time MVP and 1995 Rookie of the Year, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2016, celebrated his 45th birthday today.
Rosy played third base for Denver and Toronto, but started his career with San Diego in 1993. His number 3 was retired by San Diego (now Anchorage Aces) in 2010.
He is still regarded as one of the team’s best infielders of all-time, and holds the Bull League single-season record for slugging pct.

Rosy is reportedly spending his birthday on vacation in the Caribbean.
