    Birthdays- 11/2

    Reds:

    Darrel Thomas (26) -Ends his Reds carrer with an 8.31 ERA, but I'll remember him for that one gutty start against the Yankees.

    Orlando Cabrera (37) -Made the last out in David Cone's 1996 perfect game. Holds one record that will never be broken- homers by a Montreal Expo shortstop.

    Marcus Moore (41)

    Johnny Vander Meer -After his double no-hitters, Reds managemant wanted him to change his uniform number to "00". He declined...

    Others:

    Willie McGee (53) -Came from a very religious household; he had to sneak out to play baseball on Sundays.

    Ron Reed (69) -Played with the NBA's Detroit Pistons. One of only five pitchers to have 100 wins, 100 saves, and 50 complete games (the other four: Marberry, Kinder, Eckersley, Smoltz).

    Travis Jackson -A fine shortstop who made it into the Hall of Fame. Dave Concepcion was just as good, IMHO....

    I think you mean Daryl Thompson, not Darrel Thomas, who was a flashy, much-traveled player back in the day.

    We could add Dick Sisler. He had a very short stint as a player with the Reds in 1952 and then of course took over for Fred Hutchinson as manager during the 1964 season and then also skippered the Reds in 1965.

    On the closing day of the 1950 season at Ebbets Field, he hit a tenth-inning, opposite field three-run home run against the Brooklyn Dodgers that would give the "Whiz Kids" Phillies their first National League pennant in 35 years. Had Philadelphia lost, the Phillies and Dodgers would have finished in a dead-even tie for the NL championship and a best-of-three playoff would have resulted. The home run made Sisler world-famous; Ernest Hemingway feted him in his novel The Old Man and the Sea.
