    Birthdays: 4/16

    Reds: None that I could find...

    Others:

    Antonio Alfonseca (40) -Basbeall's favorite polydactyl.. His nickname was "El Pulpo", or "the Octopus"... No relation to Sixto Lezcano (ha ha)...

    Jim Lonborg (70) -The ace of Boston's 1967 "Impossible Dream" team...Later became a dentist...In the TV sitcom "Cheers", the picture in the bar of Sam Malone pitching for the Sox is actually Lonborg.

    Rich Rollins (74) -Quiet, bespecacled All-Star 3B for the Twins. On 6/9/66 he was one of five Twins to homer in the same inning, a record...

    Babe Phelps -Good-hitting backup catcher for Brooklyn; his nickname was "Blimp", which leads one to believe that his listed weight of 225 might have been a tad underestimated.

    Paul Waner -The Waner brother have the most hits of any brother combo in history, beating out the three Alous and the three DiMaggios,

    Dutch Leonard -This is the first Dutch Leonard; the one with the record 0.96 ERA in 1914, and the one who accused Cobb and Speaker of conspiring to throw games (it should be noted that he had a huge history of animosity toward Cobb, which was easy to do...).
