Reds:

Vince Coleman (50)

Others:

Jeff Leonard (56) Baseball Reference lists "Hackman" as a nickname for Jeff, but not "Penitentiary Face", which is a shame...

Larry Dierker (65)

Jim Fairey (67) I had a really witty comment to write here, but in the interest of correctness I'd better not...

Lou Johnson (72) Dodger outfielder who'd lost half of one of his ears to an accident. Ironically, one of yesterday's birthdays was Troy Afenir...

Tom Lasorda (84) -OK if you bought into his B.S. I never did.

Bob Lemon -A great pitcher and a heckuva manager. If you doubt his managing skills, look at the roster of the 1977 White Sox and reflect that Lemon won 90 games with them.

Urban Shocker -Just short of a HOF career with the Browns and Yankees. His real first name was "Urbain"- no kidding.

Ozzy and Sabbath think Jim and his family wear boots... but they don't know why.

Vince Coleman (50)



Somehow it had kind of slipped my mind that Coleman appeared in 33 games for the '96 Reds. He was almost at the end of the trail at that point.
