    Birthdays: 3/13

    Reds:

    Scott Sullivan (41) -Pitched 100+ relief innings for four consecutive seasons with the Reds. Currently coaching high school in Auburn, Alabama.

    Mariano Duncan (49) -The last Red to lead the league in triples.

    Terry Lee (50) -The main thing I remember about Terry Lee is that he was on BA's list of top ten Reds prospects when he was 28 years old. Nothing against Terry, but that's a sign your farm system isn't doing so well...

    Duane Walker (55) -Came up witht he Householder/Milner/Redus bunch of outfielders in between the BRM and the Eric Davis/Dave Parker/Kal Daniels years. Currently a regional sales manager for Nawkaw Corporation.

    Others:

    Will Clark (48) -Six-time All-Star who seems to have kind of fallen out of the public consciousness. His career in college and pros kept intertwining with that of Rafael Palmiero, who he apparently didn't care for all that much.

    Home Run Baker -Nicknamed not because he hit a lot of home runs but because he hit two famous ones in the 1911 World Series, off Christy Mathewson and Rube Marquard. Later a mentor of the young Jimmie Foxx.

    From what I remember Will Clark was an extremely arrogant fellow. Not well liked by just about everyone. Very good player though who could really hit in the clutch.

    Will "The Thrill" Clark had the greatest outgoing answering machine message of all time. Vida Blue set it up for him. It simply was a recording of BB King's "The Thrill Is Gone."

    Will Clark played a starring role for the 1984 U.S. Olympic team that also yielded such future major leaguers as Barry Larkin and Mark McGwire.
