    BIrthdays: 11/16

    Lots of interesting folks today.

    Reds:

    Pete Rose Jr. (42) -I always kind of had a soft spot for him because he obviously loves baseball.

    Others:

    Drew Denson (46) -Cincinnati boy who was a first-round pick of the Braves but never quite made it in the bigs.

    Dwight Gooden (47) -Youngest-ever Cy Young winner. In his prime you just couldn't imagine how anyone could hit him. Now scheduled to appear on Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew.

    Glenn Burke- First openly gay active player. His life was too hard and too short.

    Herb Washington (60) -Sprinter turned pinch-runner, he's now one of the most successful African-American restauranteurs in America, owning several McDonalds. Also owns a minor-league hockey team.

    Frank Bolling -Fine 2B of the 1950s. When he played with his brother Milt in Detroit they were one of only four brother/brother DP combos (the Ripkens were the most recent).

    Burke also "invented" the high five with good old Dusty Baker back in the 70's. So Nate owes him big time

    I remember Eddie and Johnny O'Brien of the Pirates from the 50s but I don't know who the other duo was. Do you know, chico?
    I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.

    Bob, why don't you Google this query?

    OK, Bob, good idea. OK, let's see....here it is...the fourth combo would be Garvin and Granny Hamner back in 1945. Easy as pie...why didn't I think of doing that. Thanks, Bob.

    You're welcome, Bob. Have a good day.
