Oh, thank God for the end of the off season! And who better to hail it in but Colorado Rockies legend and fan favorite, Todd Helton! Our irreplaceable first baseman is largely responsible for the Rockies' NLCS run, so let's pray that he doesn't go anywhere (and that we possibly become back-to-back NL Champions, if not first-time World Series Champions). I had to do a Rockies Player Spotlight on him because if I didn't, I might not be considered a fan anymore. So... more about Todd.Personal Life:Name: Todd Lynn HeltonBirthplace: Knoxville, TennesseeCollege: University of TennesseeAge: 34Family: Wife Christy and daughter Tierney FaithLives: Brighton, Colo.Baseball:MLB Debut: August 2, 1997, Colorado RockiesBats: LeftThrows: LeftNumber: 17Position: 1st baseHelton's been an All Star five times and is a four-time Silver Slugger. He's won three NL Gold Gloves and was a NL Batting Champion in 2000.Helton is also only one of four players to reach 400 bases in 4 consecutive seasons; two other players who did so are Lou Gehrig (1930-1931), and Jimmie Foxx (1932-1933).Stats thru May 5, 2008:Batting Average: .331RBI: 1098Home Runs: 306While attending the University of Tennessee, Helton was the backup quarterback. The starter? None other than Peyton Manning, who led the Indianapolis Colts to a Super Bowl. He claimed that if Peyton Manning had been a baseball player, Manning would have been hisbackup. I guess we can all see that Todd has a sense of humor.
