Reds:

Stan Williams (74) -Ex-pitching coach

Others:

Chad Bradford (37) -Side-arming righty featured in Moneyball.

David Bell (38)

Tim Wallach (54)

Jerry Coleman (86) -My favorite Coleman-ism from his announcing career: "Winfield runs toward the fence...he leaps...his head hits the wall!...it's rolling back in toward the infield...he picks it up and throws it in to second base!"

Kid Nichols -Great, forgotten 19th-century pitcher.

Yep, good Coleman quote, chico. Here are a couple more that I like:

"There's a hard shot to (Johnnie) LeMaster and he throws (Bill) Madlock into the dugout."

"George Hendrick simply lost that sun-blown popup."

Padres just dedicated a Jerry Coleman statue the other day.
