Happy Birthday to Plácido Enrique Polanco, Star Athlete and Dad

Happy Birthday to Major League Baseball player Plácido Enrique Polanco, born on October 10, 1975 in the Dominican Republic.  Polanco attended Miami-Dade Community College, where he starred on the team.  Polanco is regarded as “a consummate professional”, and has won numerous awards for his sports performance.  In 2006, he led the Detroit Tigers to their first World Series in 22 years.  As a sports writer in the Detroit press stated, “Without Polanco, there’s no game-winning home run, no celebration, no champagne. . . . Instead, Polanco and the Tigers are headed to the World Series.”  Polanco’s off-field starring role is as husband and father of two children.
