C Ivan Rodriguez

Ivan Rodriguez Torres (Pudge or I-Rod)

Bats Right, Throws Right
Height 5' 9", Weight 205 lb.

Debut June 20, 1991
Born November 27, 1971 in Manati, P.R.


  • AL MVP in 1999.

  • 10th in MVP voting 1996, 1998, 2004.

  • 2003 NLCS MVP. He batted .321 with two HR and 10 RBI.

  • 13 time All Star.

  • Batted over .300 nine times.

  • Lifetime batting average of .304

  • Winner of 11 Gold Gloves, the most ever by a catcher.

  • No other catcher in the past 35 years has been as successful at throwing out potential base stealers. Rodriguez has thrown out 48% of would-be base stealers throughout his career. The best percentage in baseball.

  • Signed with a Detroit Tiger team that lost 119 games in 2003 and helped them win 29 more games in 2004.

  • Pudge's handling of a mostly young pitching staff has been a key to the Tigers success. Detroit's team ERA has gone from 5.30 in 2003 to a major league best 3.72 in 2006.

I hate losing games. I'm not a loser. It's hard for me to be on a team losing every day. That's not me. That's not the type of player that I am. I love winning.
