Re: Birthdays: 1/1
Adding Earl Torgeson - A first-baseman from '47 thru '61 but best-remembered as a Boston Brave or Phillie. A fierce competitor, he was noted for his frequent on-field clashes. He wore glasses and, after getting them broken in the first skirmish of his career, he always remembered to carefully remove them before any future run-ins. He was one of the players involved in the Phillies/Dodgers/Braves/Reds deal that saw Cincy give up Joe Adcock and receive Rocky Bridges. Ouch!
