 Bert Blyleven Biography

Born Rik Aalbert Blijleven,April 6, 1951, in Zeist Netherlands Bert pitched in the Majors from 1970 to 1992 notoriousfor his curveball which according to Brooks Robinson,"was nasty I'll tell you that. Enough to make your knees buckle. Bert was a terrific pitcher – a dominant pitcher."

He was raised in Garden Grove  California and drafted by the Minnesota Twins right after high school in 1969, graduating to the Majors the following year at 19, and,named American League Rookie of the Year by The Sporting News.

Bert went on to play for the Texas Rangers,the California  Angels the Pittsburgh Pirates (winning the 1979 World Series) the Cleveland Indians (leading the American League in shutouts in 1985, and pitching 293 2/3 innings & completing 24 games - which no pitcher has done since), returned to the Minnesota Twins (exceeding 3,000 strikeouts and winning

the 1987 World Series), and the California Angels (again leading the league in shutouts).

Since 1996, Bert has been doing color commentary for the Minnesoata Twins, leading to his mastery of the "Circle Machine" (the telestrator, which permits on-screen highlighting by the commentator), which in turn gave rise to the  Circle Me Bert phenomenon. Bert and his wife Gayle have leveraged the Circle Me Bert craziness into an opportunity to raise money for a cause close to their hearts, the fight to end Parkinson's Disease.
