Julian Javier

Biography:Julian Javier Manuel Julián Javier Liranzo (born August 9, 1936 in San Francisco de Macorís, Dominican Republic), best known as Julián Javier , is a former Major League Baseball second baseman and right-handed batter who played with the St. Louis Cardinals (1960-71) and Cincinnati Reds (1972). He is father of former bigleaguer Stan Javier.

Javier was strictly a good-contact singles hitter, one who jumps on high fastballs and hits them up the middle. He was also a good hit-and-run man, and one of the best bunters in the league. A smart baserunner, he was quick enough out the box to avoid hitting double plays, and never hesitated to take the extra base. As a second baseman, Javier was a master at handling slow rollers, with good range to both sides, going back for pop-ups, and turning the double play fearlessly.

On July 9, 1963, Javier and teammates Bill White (1B), Dick Groat (SS) and Ken Boyer (3B), combined for an all-Cardinal starting NL All-Star infield. He played again in the 1968 All-Star game. The same year, he was considered in the MVP selection (9th).

A .333 hitter in 19 World Series games, Javier belted a three-run home run in Game Seven of the 1967 series, to help pitcher Bob Gibson win his third Series game against the Red Sox and bring the World Championship to the Cardinals.

In 13-season career, Javier hit .257 with 78 home runs, 506 RBI, 722 runs, 216 doubles, 55 triples, and 135 stolen bases in 1622 games.
