Re: Birthdays: 1/2
Madlock had great bat skills. Finished his career with more BBs than Ks.
Won a batting title with the Cubs in 1976 (beating out the Reds' Ken Griffey) and was TRADED ipso facto for an old-30 yr Bobby Murcer. (Way to go, Cubbies!)
After two season with the Giants, they traded him also.
Definitely not a "clubhouse" guy. "Mad Dog" was the nickname.
