    Steve Bilko -Minor league slugger who spent the 1958 season with the Reds as a backup.

    Johnny Kling- Catcher with the great Cubs teams of the early 1900s, he finished his career with the Reds in 1913.

    The guy who Bilko backed up at first base that year was George Crowe.

    Also, I read that Nat Hiken, creator of The Phil Silvers Show, supposedly took the name of the character Silvers played (Sgt. Bilko) from Steve Bilko.
