Slim pickings today...probably the worst so far during this project.

Reds:

Val Picinich- Long-time catcher who spent three years with the Reds in the late 1920s.

Others:

Ken Forsch (65) -The lesser of the two Forsch brothers, but a good pitcher for a number of years with Houston.

Casey Wise -You wanna see a bad batting record, look up Casey- he makes Paul Janisch look like Honus Wagner.

Oh, yeah...I see what you mean. Didn't really play all that much (126 games over a 4-year career from '57 thru '60) but never did manage to get beyond .197 BA. Must have had a great glove. :)
