RANCE MULLINIKS

Road Trip Stop #1: Visalia, CA


It's one of the most memorable names of the 26 Teams Era in baseball (1977-92): Rance Mulliniks. You want to say Lance, but it's Rance; a Mulliniks sounds like some kind of specialized carpentry tool or maybe an alien species in Star Wars. It's a name you'll never forget, and Toronto Blue Jays fans of the 1980s still have a very special place for Rance in their hearts, naming him the 27th greatest Blue Jay of all time. Although he got his first break in the big leagues in 1977 with the Angels, Rance would surely go into our Hall of Fame as a Blue Jay, forming a memorable platoon at third base with another utility immortal, Garth Iorg, and wrapping up his career with a World Series ring in 1992.
