Lance Berkman Biography
Astros Slugger and Four Time All-Star, Lance Berkman was born on February 10, 1976 in Waco, Texas. On September 13, 2006, Berkman became only the 2nd switch hitter in Major League history to hit 40 or more homers in multiple seasons, Mickey Mantle being the other (Mantle hit more than 40 home runs in four different seasons).
During the 2006 season, Berkman had the best season of his career. He hit 45 home runs and had 136 RBIs, breaking the Astros single season record, which was set by Jeff Bagwell in 1997 (135). He also had an excellent .315 batting average, and an on-base percentage of .420, as well as a slugging percentage of .621. He has also hit a career high 5 home runs from the right side of the plate. He finished 3rd in the MVP voting behind Ryan Howard and Albert Pujols.
Berkman started 2007 in a bit of a slump, batting .261, well below his career average, but rebounded for a strong second half of the season. Also, the Astros tried to stimulate offense, changing the batting order a lot, and he has volunteered, if necessary, to move back to the outfield for a few games. Berkman finished the 2007 season with a .278 batting average, 34 home runs and 102 RBIs, along with 7 stolen bases.
