    Birthdays- 9/30

    Reds:

    Brandon Watson (30) One game with Reds, no PAs.

    Curtis Goodwin (38)

    Gabby Street- Back in the day, it was considered a stunt to catch a ball dropped from the Wasshington Monument. I believe that Street, when he was with the Senators, was the first to accomplish this.

    Others:

    Jose Lima -He wasn't always good, but he sure was fun...

    Dave Madagan (49) Lou Pinella's cousin; I didn't know that.

    Johnny Podres -Overshadowed by Koufax and Drysdale, but a fine pitcher in his own right.

    Robin Roberts -Great pitcher, class act...

    Great pitcher, indeed! He was a Reds killer but that didn't make them unique. He killed pretty much everybody.

    I will never forget a game he pitched against the Reds in Philly. Bobby Adams led off the game by hitting a homer and Roberts then proceeded to retire the next 27 batters in a row. The Reds lost the game. Roberts often pitched with only 2 days rest...a real workhorse.
