Before making his debut in the MLB, Fred played for the USA national team at the Pan American Games in 1971, in which he was a major contributor to a silver medal. After finished high school, Fred enrolled at the University of Southern California, then in 1974 he was drafted by the Boston Red Sox, and in 1975 he won the MVP and Rookie of the Year awards, becoming the first player to achieve such a double. He played for the Red Sox until the end of 1980 season, winning a number of prestigious awards, including four Gold Gloves, then six consecutive All-Star appearances from 1975 until 1980, and in 1979 he was the AL Batting champion.
After the 1980 season, Fred was sent to the California Angels where he spent the next four seasons; unfortunately, his numbers declined over the years, and after his contract expired in 1984, the Angels decided not to re-sign him, so he joined the Baltimore Orioles for which he played between 1985 and 1988, but due to several injuries and so a further decline in performance he never played more than 140 games in a season. He changed teams again in 1988, spending a season with the Detroit Tigers, which acquired him on the day of the trading deadline. This trade caused a controversy since Fred didn’t arrive in Detroit before the deadline passed, which made ineligible for the postseason. After the disastrous season, he decided not to retire just yet and did another season, this time at San Diego, playing for the Padres, but he wasn’t good enough for the MLB and retired at the season’s end.
During his career, Fred scored 306 home runs and had a batting average .283, 1960 hits, 388 doubles, 43 triples, 72 stolen bases, and 1063 runs, all that in 1969 games. Thanks to his success, he has been inducted into the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame,
Following his retirement, Fred stayed in baseball, though as a color analyst for ESPN from 1991 until 1998, which also added to his wealth.
