Tony Armas Biography
Tony Armas was born July 2, 1953 in Puerto Pritu, Anzotegui State, Venezuela. Twice an All-Star, Armas played 14 seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates, Oakland Athletics, Boston Red Sox, and California Angels, compiling a .252 batting average with 251 home runs and 815 runs batted in. Armas was prone to injuries that affected his career. In his major league career, Armas went to the disabled list 12 times, missing 302 games.
Armas was named the American League Player of the Year by The Sporting News in 1981, a season in which he led the American League in home runs and games. In 1982, Armas set a pair of ML records for a right fielder with 11 putouts and 12 total chances against the Toronto Blue Jays. Later that year, he was traded to the Red Sox for Carney Lansford.
In Boston, Armas became a center fielder, sharing the outfield duties with Jim Rice (LF) and Dwight Evans (RF). Although he was booed by fans for his low batting average (.218), he placed second in the AL with 36 home runs, and seventh with 107 RBI.
Armas peaked again in 1984, batting .268 and leading the AL with 43 HR, 123 RBI, 77 extra-base hits, and 339 total bases. He was named to The Sporting News and UPI postseason AL All-Star teams, was Boston's co-MVP, and placed seventh in the AL MVP balloting.
From 1980 to 1985, Armas hit more homers (187) than any other AL player. His next two seasons were ruined by recurring leg injuries and Boston's acquisition of Dave Henderson. Armas was released after batting just once in the 1986 World Series. In the following years, he became a valuable role player for the Angels, and he retired after the 1989 season.
