Blow Out the Candles January 2

Bill "Mad Dog" Madlock is celebrating his 63rd birthday today.

A lifetime .305 hitter, Madlock won two batting titles with the Cubs (1975,1976) and another two with the Pirates(1981,1983).

Smiling here, Bill had a temper.  He was ejected from 18 games as a player and another 3 as a coach.

"I loved San Francisco because I got a chance to play with Willie McCovey. I loved Chicago because I loved playing with Billy Williams. But the Pirates, any time you win, and getting a chance to play with guys like Dave Parker, Stargell and Ed Ott was truly a treat…Chuck Tanner was my favorite manager. He was just unbelievable."


  1. Just wanted to say great post. I always liked Bill M as a kid because I share the same birthday as him.
