FAVORITE BRAVES PLAYERS OF THE 1970'S
#15 ROWLAND OFFICE
ATLANTA BRAVES 1972-1979
Rowland spent part of seven seasons with the Braves during the 70's. He was always a pretty good defensive outfielder and had a 29-game hitting streak in 1976 that lasted from May 21st until June 23rd when Rowland raised his batting average from .207 to .311.
Though what I remember most about Roland were the commercials that he did locally during his Brave years. The Public Service Announcements is particular. As much as I liked Rowland, let's just say that speaking in front of a camera was not his strong suit.
