As I discussed with reader Max (aka jacobmrley) in the comments for the last entry, this is the third straight player featured who has "two first names". It's just uncanny, is what it is.
-Originally from San Francisco de Macoris in the Dominican Republic, 19-year-old Julian signed with the Pirates in 1956.
-Renowned for his excellent range at second base, he started there for St. Louis for over a decade. Teammate Tim McCarver called him "The Phantom" because of his skill in turning the double play while avoiding sliding base runners.
-Played in three World Series with the Cardinals, who won it all in 1964 and 1967 and lost to the Tigers in 1968. Also played for Cincinnati in their 1972 World Series loss to Oakland. Overall, he hit .333 in Fall Classic play, with seven RBI in 54 at-bats - most notably a three-run homer in the clinching Game 7 of the 1967 Series.
-After a dozen seasons in St. Louis, finished his career with the Reds in 1972. He retired as a .257 hitter with 78 homers and 506 RBI.
-The Dominican winter league team Aguilas del Cibao retired his uniform number 25 and named him as the second baseman on their all-time team.
-Julian founded two baseball leagues in his native country, the Summer League (1975-1978) and the Khoury League, later renamed the Roberto Clemente League. He and son Stan also founded the expansion team Gigantes del Cibao in the LIDOM winter league; the club plays in a stadium that bears the elder Javier's name.
