Rockin' Retro Rockies: OF Dante Bichette

Your Rockin Retro Rockie is: OF DANTE BICHETTE!

Bichette started out in 1988, after being drafted, as part of the California Angels. With the Angels he hit an average BA of .242 with his highest season being .255. After a couple of dismal seasons the California Angels then traded Bichette to the Milwaukee. He was traded for Dave Parker who hit .282 in his only season with the Brewers because he hung em up the next year. Bichette played 2 season there before being traded to the Rockies. He was traded for Kevin Reimer however Reimer never played a game for the Rockies because he was drafted Nov. 17, 1992 and was traded Nov. 17 1992 . With the Rockies is when Bichette exploded. He never hit below .290 and never less than 20 HR and 80 RBI. He was a 4 time MVP, a 4 time All-Star and a 1 time Silver Slugger award winner. Then he was traded to Cincinnnatti, for Stan Belinda and Jeffrey Hammonds, and Boston for Chris Reitsma and John Curtice (minors). He ended up hitting .350 that year. The next year he filed for FA but wasn't picked up so he retired.

Side note: He went 10 for 17 (.588 BA) in the 4 1995 Playoff games he played in as a Colorado Rockie
