    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

    Other fun names today: Phenomenal Smith and Clyde Kluttz
