Baseball great, Frederic Michael "Fred" Lynn, was born February 3, 1952 in Chicago, Illinois. He is a former center fielder in Major League Baseball who played for the Boston Red Sox (1974-80), California Angels (1981-84), Baltimore Orioles (1985-88), Detroit Tigers (1988-89) and San Diego Padres (1990). Fred Lynn ranks #15 among the Top 50 all-time at CF.

It was in Boston where he broke into the Major Leagues in 1975 and promptly captured Rookie of the Year and MVP honors all at once. It was in Boston where he developed a swing that made him a natural Fenway Park hitter. And it was in Boston where he crashed into the center-field wall so hard in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series that the wall was soon thereafter padded in his honor. ----Redsox.com

"[Fred] Lynn is the most complete player in our league. But when you think of the most dangerous hitter, you think of a [Jim] Rice or [Don] Baylor, a guy who scares you every time he comes to the plate." ó Toronto manager Roy Hartsfield, 1979

Fred Lynn had the greatest coming out party in baseball history in 1975, when as a rookie, he played a stellar center field for the Red Sox and earned the American League Most Valuable Player Award. All season, opposing pitchers searched in vain for a way to get the left-handed hitter out, and all season they were left scratching their heads. Lynn hit .331 in his freshman campaign, and followed it with a .314 mark in 1976, but injuries kept him out of the lineup all too frequently for the remainder of his career.

Fred Lynn was healthy in 1978 and 1979, and in the latter year, he had his best overall campaign, belting 39 homers to go with 122 RBI, 116 runs scored, 42 doubles, 82 walks, and a .333 average. But after he was traded by Boston to the Angels, he was never quite the same player. He did recapture his magic twice after leaving Red Sox Nation, however.

In 1983 he hit the first grand slam in All-Star Game history, and in the 1982 League Championship Series, he punished Brewers' pitchers for a .611 batting average and 11 hits in the Angels' five-game defeat. Seemingly destined to become one of the game's greats, Lynn never met those lofty and unfair expectations, but he still produced 306 homers and more than 1,100 RBI in his injury-riddled career.

His 306 career home runs placed him behind only Willie Mays, Ken Griffey, Jr., Mickey Mantle, Duke Snider, Dale Murphy, Joe DiMaggio, Jim Edmonds, and Andruw Jones among center fielders.

In his 17-year career, Lynn batted .283 with 1111 RBI, 1960 hits, 1063 runs, 306 home runs 388 doubles, 43 triples, and 72 stolen bases in 1969 games.

Today Fred Lynn lives in Carlsbad, California with his wife Natalie. Fred spends most of his time working within the Red Sox organization and working for Child Haven, an organization dedicated helping disadvantaged youth. He enjoys golfing, going to the ballpark, and fishing.
