    Birthdays: 12/12

    Reds:

    Redleg Snyder -Played for the Reds in 1876. I never heard of the guy, but with a name like that, he's going on the list.

    Others:

    Ervin Santana (29) -His 2011 no-hitter against Cleveland was his first victory against that team in 11 tries.

    Orlando Hudson (34) -First Dodger to hit for the cycle at Dodger Stadium. Even more impressive: three of the hits were against Randy Johnson.

    Gorman Thomas (61) -Listed as the first member of the Seattle Pilots. Led the AL in homers in the period from 1978-83.

    Ralph Garr- (66) In 1973 he set a dubious record of the lowest OBP for a player with 200 hits: .323.

    Allan Lewis (70) -The Panamanian Express. He was Herb Washington before Herb; a product of Charlie Finley's bright idea to carry a pinch running specialist. In 156 big-league games he only batted 31 times

    Yeah, I remember Clyde Kluttz from the late 40s and early 50s and he had quite a lengthy career. Didn't recall that he had a double 't' in his last name though. I should know to trust your postings however...you have definitely proven yourself with these daily birthday entries. Keep 'em coming.
    I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.

    Adding Raul Sanchez - Had a short career for the Reds back in 1957 and 1960. Not a memorable career at all...except that he had 'CINCINNATI' across the front of his uniform. That makes all the difference.

    Bummed I didn't see this post until just now because Wednesday was my birthday too!

    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”
