Re: Birthdays- 10/24
Ossie Bluege (pronounced to rhyme with "boogie") was a third baseman with the Senators in the 1930s, and is credited with being the first third baseman to play closer to home to "cut off the cone". Unlike most players who move from shortstop to third as they get older, Ossie played more shortstop in his later years. He worked as an accountant in the offseason, and was eventually named comptroller for the Senators.
