    I LOVE IT. That is my favorite TV show and I love that ABC Family is airing it every night. That first season was something very special. We missed Saracen's number earlier in the day yesterday. We could have used him for #7. Oh well.

    Thanks, Klu, for the Bailey pic. He was traded early on in 61 for Don Blasingame, 2nd baseman, who filled the one big question mark on that team.

    And poor Don proceeded to give his worst performance ever in the league.

    My fave Bailey story (and there are a few) is how during a ST game in FLA he finished up, got dressed and went to watch the rest of the game in the stands) At the time it was a Jim Crow situation up there, a rope was draped down the stands and separated the blacks and the whites, on one side of the rope was Brooks Lawrence, who had also finished his work for the day.

    Bailey removed the rope and sat with Lawrence. by all accounts the rope was never placed back again.

    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Here's a photo of Willard Hershberger (#5), played for the Reds from 1938-1940 and was the backup catcher for Ernie Lombardi. Hershberger has the distinction of being the only major league player to commit suicide during the season. During one point in the 1940 season, Hershberger got to play a few games in a row after Lombardi got banged up. Hershberger blamed himself for a few of the losses during that stretch and sadly committed suicide August 3, 1940.

    The Reds ended up winning the World Series that year and donated a portion of their championship winnings to Hershberger's mother...

    -Walt Whitman
