Happy birthday to Keith Moreland, Cubs outfielder/infielder/catcher
from 1982-1987 and Cubs broadcaster from 2011 to 2013.
Prior to his career with the Cubs, Moreland was a College World Series
Champion with the University of Texas in 1975 and won a World Series
Championship as a part-time player with the Philadelphia Phillies in 1980.
Moreland was a solid middle of the order hitter in his 6 seasons with the
team and helped lead the team to the 1984 NLCS, a team that ended up just
one victory short of a World Series appearance.
