THE GRANDYMAN CAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This can be heard loud and proud throughout my house whenever the Yankees outfielder, Curtis Granderson hits a homerun in a game.
Curtis Granderson was born on March 16th, 1981 and has been on the New York Yankees since the 2010 season. He was originally on the Detroit Tigers from the years 2004-2009 but was traded to the Yanks when the Tigers were trying to reduce their payroll. He was officially traded to the Yankees on December 9th, 2009 and would begin his great Yankee career that spring as a outfielder.
Although he was out for quite a few games due to a strained groin, the Grandyman hit a homerun during his very first at bat as a Yankee on April 4th, 2010. He finished the 2010 season with 24 homeruns, a batting average of .246, and having had played 136 games.
In the 2011 season, Curtis Granderson was named American League Player of The Month in August. He had a batting average of 286, had ten homeruns, 29 RBI and scored 29 runs. Also that month after playing 115 games, he hit 30 received over 6.6 million votes for the MLB All-Star Game. He also became the first player to hit 40 home runs, 10 triples, and steal 25 bases in one season
The 2012 season was one to remember as well. Granderson hit his 200th career home run against the Cleveland Indians and hit his 1000th hit against the KansasCity Royals. That season he finished off with a batting average of .232 and 43 home runs.
He also finished the season with 106 RBI and set a new Yankee record by striking out 195 times in that season.
This past 2013 season the Grandyman fractured his forearm during spring training and was out until May 14th. He also was moved to right field and started on May 18th. On May 24th, 2013 he broke his knuckle and was put on the disabled list and came back on August 2nd.
According to a poll conducted by Sports Illustrated, Curtis Granderson was voted to be one of the friendliest players in Major League Baseball. A fun fact about Granderson is that he is one of the only players in the major leagues to still wear high socks, which he does to honor players from the Negro Leagues
