    Too bad you weren't old enough to enjoy those teams, SC.

    Good Year! I am April 25th...though I looked it up and the Reds finished 5th in National league that year with an 86-76 record and on the date I was born they lost to the Dodgers 7-1. No wonder I came out crying.....

    I can't wait until RFS62 sees this thread and tells us about baseball when he was born. I love stories about the 1860's.
