OK. Confession time. The first time I ever heard of D'Anna, a couple years ago, I was playing the OOTP baseball sim, and D'Anna was one of the farmhands listed for the Reds. I first assumed he was a fictitious player created by the game as roster fodder. Imagine my surprise to discover he was a real player.
Since then, his name has always stuck out when I glance at minor league box scores.
