It's hard to believe that it was 38 years ago that Jim Rice and Fred Lynn were patrolling the Fenway outfield as the rookie "Gold-Dust Twins". Almost four decades later, Rice turns 60 today and sits on top of the world—revered by Red Sox fans and enshrined in Cooperstown. Over his 16 seasons wearing only Carmine Hose, Rice hit .298 with an on-base percentage of .352 and an OPS of .854. He smacked 382 HRs and—in his prime—was the most feared right-handed hitter in baseball. Rice finished in the top five of MVP voting six times. Just think, if Rice had not broken his wrist at the end of the 1975 season, we would have celebrated ending 'The Curse' after only 57 years. Happy Birthday, Jim Ed!
