44-year old former 2B Eric Young Sr. was a rock solid player for the Rockies. He played in 613 games in his five years with the Rockies and he was 626 of 2,120 (.295 avg, .790 OPS) with 378 runs scored, 30 homers, 227 RBIs and 180 stolen bases. Young’s best year for the Rockies came in 1996. He played in 141 games in 1996 for the Rockies and he was 184 of 568 (.324 avg, .814 OPS) with 113 runs scored, 8 homers, 74 RBIs and 53 stolen bases (which led the National League). He was an N.L. All-Star in 1996 and he won the Silver Slugger Award. Young is the Rockies’ all-time leader in steals with 180 of them. He is also #10 in runs scored (378), #5 in triples (28) and #8 in walks (254) in Rockies’ history. Eric Young’s son, 26-year old switch-hitting 2B/OF Eric Young Jr. plays for the Rockies right now. He has played in 12 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 5 of 12 (.417 avg, 1.128 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 0 homers, 2 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. Young Jr. has now played in 170 games in his first four years with the Rockies and he is 110 of 439 (.251 avg, .633 OPS) with 71 runs scored, 1 homer, 21 RBIs and 51 stolen bases. Jr. has the same skill set as his father, but he just can’t seem to break into the starting lineup.
