Re: Birthdays: 2/18
Let's add two Reds shortstops from opposite ends of the timeline:
Didi Gregorius turns 23 today.
Frank Fennelly was a Reds shortstop in the mid-1880s. The Reds infield of that time (Long John Reilly, Bid McPhee, Fennelly and Hick Carpenter) stayed together longer than any infield in the history of the American Association. One source called Fennelly the best player in the AA in 1884. You'd think I'd have heard of the guy. So much left to learn...
