Today In Brewer History: Happy Birthday, Bob Coluccio

On this day in 1951, Robert Pasquali (Bob) Collucio was born in Centralia, Washington. He was only 17 years old when the Seattle Pilots drafted him in the 17th round of the 1969 draft  (405th overall), but turned out to be the only player drafted in that round to play in the majors.

After four minor league seasons Coluccio was a full time major leaguer at age 21 in 1973, batting .224/.311/.411 while playing in 124 games in the outfield. Unfortunately, that turned out to be his best offensive year: The Brewers traded him to the White Sox during the 1975 season and he finished his major league career as a .220/.305/.353 hitter over 370 games between three teams. He was done with the big leagues at age 26.

Coluccio turns 60 today. With help from the B-Ref Play Index, we'd also like to wish a happy birthday to:
