    Birthdays: 11/1

    Reds:

    Gary Redus (54) -Hit for the cycle on 8/27/89- the same day Pete Rose was banned from baseball.

    Dick Baney (65) -Pitched for the Reds in '73 and '74. Posed nude for Playgirl in '77.

    Bid McPhee -The last man to play 2b without a glove.

    Others:

    Coco Crisp (32)

    Fernando Valenzuela (51) -Although his number has not been officially retired by the Dodgers, it hasn't been assigned to any other players since he retired.

    Vic Power -Played in Puerto Rico under his real name, Vic Pellot, but when he played minor league ball in French Canada, he found that "Pellot" sounded like a French slang term for a certain part of the anatomy, so he began going by "Vic Power".

    Wow! I never knew that about Baney.

    Fernando Mania was something else back in 1981. I have never seen annything like it before or since. The ESPN documentary about that time was really good too.

    Miguel Dilone turns 58 today. He had one of the great out-of-context years in 1980 with Cleveland: .341 BA, 61 steals. He never had more than 500 ABs in any other season.
