Biography

Panamanian Major League Baseball (MLB) first baseman, second baseman and coach who played from 1967 to 1985 for the Minnesota Twins and the California Angels. The greatest contact hitter in Twins history, he won the 1977 AL Most Valuable Player Award, setting a Twins record with a .388 batting average.

Carew appeared in 18 straight All-Star Games and led the AL in hits three times, with his 239 hits in 1977 being twelfth most at the time.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from Rod Carew: One Tough Out by Rod Carew and Jaime Aron (Triumph Books, 2020): "I was delivered by Dr. Rodney Cline and, in his honor, I was named Rodney Cline Carew... When my mother went into Labor the evening of October 1, 1945, my parents boarded a Panama Railroad car and headed to a U.S. army hospital 40 miles away...Once the wails of a newborn rang out, the conductor summoned a physician from the white section [of the racially segregated train]--Dr. Cline."

A birth time of 9 PM is speculative.
