Put 'em up, put 'em up! Which one of you first? I can fight you both together if you want. I can fight you with one paw tied behind my back. I can fight you standing on one foot. I can fight you with my eyes closed. Oh, pull an axe on me, eh? Sneaking up on me, eh? Why, I'll... Ruff!

Eddie Gaedel II gets a tryout with the other St. Louis team... 56 years after his Daddy. 6'1" Jim Edmonds (you know his story) stands next to and towers over the 4'2" Gaedel II. If Eddie Jr. makes the team he'll only be the 2nd shortest man to play the game... behind his Daddy who stood 3'7". Unfortunately the Gaedels may not be as well known as other father-junior tandems like the Matthews or the Griffeys.
