    Birthdays- 10/9

    Reds:

    Steve Gibralter (39) Farmhand who got a brief cup of coffee in the bigs.

    Others:

    Fred Patek (67) -"The Flea"- 5'4" tall

    Joe Pepitone (71) Flake; famous because he was a Yankee.

    Joe Sewell -Rushed to the bigs after Ray Chapman was killed, he built a Hall of Fame career. Struck out an average of only ten times per season. The anti-Drew Stubbs.

    Rube Marquard -HOF pitcher who's interviewed in Glory of Their Times.

    Charles "Victory" Faust -John McGraw' good luck charm in 1911; not a real player.

    The audio of his taped interview for the book is really fascinating if you ever get to hear it.

    Patek was always one of my favorite non Reds. I'm not even sure he was 5-4. He was really small. Could have been a good jockey.

    Mickey Haefner was a 30-year-old rookie in 1943 who had a terrific season swinging between starting and relieving. After the war, however, the real ballplayers came home and reality set in...
