    Birthdays- 10/15

    Reds:

    Chad Mottola (40)

    Bill Henry (84) -Lefty reliever who posted a 2.19 ERA for the '61 pennant winners.

    Sammie Byrd -Known as "Babe Ruth's Legs", he spent most of his career as a defensive replacement for the Yankees before ending up with the Reds.

    Evan Swanson -Speedy CF who started in the majors late and finished early, but in between was a pretty darn good ballplayer.

    Others:

    Jim Palmer (66) One of those too-perfect guys that I found it hard to relate to.

    Mel Harder -Won 223 games for the Indians and ended up just short of the Hall of Fame (he was involved in two runoff elections but lost them both). Actually, the HOF pitchers he's most similar to are guys like Waite Hoyt and Jesse Haines, who are pretty marginal Hall of Famers.

    Concerning Gabby:

    *He was a victim of identity theft and his death was erroneously reported in August 2007 in a news story that was widely circulated. This incident was reported by Rick Reilly in Sports Illustrated 9-24-2007 in a column entitled (get this) "The Passing of a Counterfeit Bill".
