Reds:

Dmitri Young (38) -Hit .300 or better in each of his four seasons as a Red. People still joke about his girth, but the guy could play ball.

Larry Luebbers (42) -Local boy who had two separate short stints with the Reds.

Will White -A great Red pitcher from the 19th century. His nickname was "Whoop-La"; look at his picture on Baseballreference.com and tell me if that looks like a "whoop-la".

Buttercup Dickerson -Just couldn't pass up that name.

Others:

Ty Wigginton (34) -As far as I can tell, the only active major leaguer whose birthday is today.

Orlando Hernandez (46) AKA "El Duque".

:) Nope, he looks very proper and straight-laced to me. If he were here I'd probably call him 'Mr. White'.
