    You know you're a baseball geek when...

    Today is my Dad's 85th birthday and we had a party for him at the nursing home where he lives. He introduced me to a volunteer and said his last name was Oliverio. I asked, "like the one-time ball player named Steve Oliverio?" He said yes and that Steve was his nephew. He then told me he played for the Reds in the minors. I looked him up and saw e never made it to the bigs, but pitched as high as AAA at Nashville for the team. I had it in my mind that he must have reached the majors since I remembered him. Now I'm remembering guys from the minors.
