Ralph Kiner dies at 91Rancho Mirage, California. He was born in Santa Rita, New Mexico on October 27, 1922 and raised in California.

As a young man Kiner served in the U.S. Navy as a pilot during World War II. After the war he became an All- American Baseball player. The first game Kiner played, was on April 12, 1946 with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Then in 1947 he finished the season with 54 home runs.

He holds the major league record for eight home runs in four consecutive multi-homer games, a record set in 1947. Kiner was picked for the All-Star Games for six straight seasons from 1948 to 1953. Later a back injury caused him to retire with 369 home runs, 1019 RBI’s and a .279 lifetime batting average.

His love of Baseball did not stop there. He soon developed as “Kiner’s Korner” on WOR-TV.  Kiner continued broadcasting for 53 baseball seasons, a passionate announcer for the New York Mets until his recent death.

Elected into the Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame in 1975, he was also elected to the New York Mets Hall of Fame in 1984, and the Pittsburgh Pirates retired his uniform number 4 in 1987. The Sporting News made Kiner number 90 on the 1999 list of “The 100 Greatest Baseball Players“.

Kiner loved the game of baseball and it showed this through his love of the game and community. Upon Kiner’s passing, New York Mets owner Fred Wilpon said “Ralph Kiner was one of the most beloved people in Mets history. An original Met and extraordinary gentleman.” We will all miss this baseball legend.
