    Birthdays: 33/5

    Reds:

    Paul Konerko (36) -Played in 28 games for the 1998 Reds. In 2009, His 300th homer came back-to-back with Jermaine Dye's 300th homer. That's what I call planning...

    Ryan Franklin (39) -Pitched for the 2006 Reds, then moved to St. Louis and instantly became good...

    Brian Hunter (41) -Yesterday's Brian Hunter was the 1b-OF, today's is the speedy CF who stole 74 bases in 1997. His short tenure as a Red was in 2000.

    Jeffrey Hammonds (41) -A Red in 1998-99. His career ended with a bang; the last runs he drove in were a result of a grand slam.

    Others:

    Del Crandall (82) -A good hitter and a great defensive catcher; he won four of the first five NL gold gloves at that position.

    Sam Thompson -Drove in 166 runs in 1887, which stood as the record until the Babe topped it in 1921. Here's trivia for you: his great-great-grandson is bluegrass mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile, late of Nickel Creek.
