    Birthdays- 8/24

    Reds:

    Kip Gross (46)- 6-4, 3.47 for the 1991 Reds.

    Neil Fiala (54)- Acquired from St. Louis for Doug Bair. For some reason, I recall that he was supposed to be a good bunter, but as he only had two ABs for the Reds he didn't have much chance to prove it.

    Othrs:

    Brett Gardner (28)

    Tim Salmon (43)

    Cal Ripken Jr. (51)

    Hal Griggs -Obscure Senator pitcher mentioned here only for his career record of 6-26.

    Hank Gowdy -Star of the 1914 "Miracle" Boston Braves, and as I recall, the first major leage player to serve in World War One.

    Harry Hooper -Member, with Tris Speaker and Duffy Lewis, of Boston's "Million Dollar Outfield". I always get him confused with Harry Heilman.

    We could add Frank Secory. He was an outfielder and spent 4 seasons in the bigs, including playing a couple of games for the Reds in 1942. He is better known as an umpire in the NL from 1952 through 1970. He was behind the plate on 5-26-56 when 3 Cincinnati pitchers held Milwaukee hitless for 9 innings before losing in the 10th; it was the first time in major league history that multiple pitchers combined to throw 9 innings without allowing a hit.
    I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.
