Jay Bruce (25) -Third-youngest Red to reach 100 homers (Bench, Robby).
Alex Grammas (86) -Backup IF for the Reds in the mid-'50s, better known as the third-base coach on the Big Red Machine and a mentor to Dave Concepcion. Happy 86, Alex...
Gary Pettis (54) -Drew Stubbs minus power. Currently a Rangers coach. On his 1985 Topps baseball card, the player pictured is actually Gary's younger brother.
Harold "Gomer" Hodge -Became an early-season folk hero for the 1971 Indians with a number of timely hits in April, but couldn't make it last. Died in 2007 of Lou Gehrig's Disease.
Wally Moon (82) -The 1954 NL Rookie of the Year, which is pretty impressive when you consider that Hank Aaron and Ernie Banks were rookies that year. Had a good career with the Cards and Dodgers; made three all-star teams and scored that last run at the L.A. Coliseum. Possessor of baseball's most magnificent unibrow; it must be seen to be believed.
Art Ditmar -Soft-tossing righty with the A's and Yankees. Won the last game at Philadelphia's Shibe Park- it must have been an interesting game; Yogi Berra played third and Mantle played shortstop. In 1982, Budweiser aired a commercial in which the announcer mistakenly named Ditmar as the pitcher who gave up Mazeroski's famous homer in the 1960 World Series. Art sued Budweiser for half a million. I'm not sure how the case came out. I'll try to look it up later if I get the time.
