Eduardo Perez (42)
Brad Lesley (53) -Anybody know what "The Animal" is up to these days?
Jacoby Ellsbury (28)
Ellis Burks (46) -A very underrated player IMHO...
Ellis Clary -Had a short playing career during WW2, then a long career as a scout, mostly for the Twins. One of baseball's great characters; fellow scout Spud Chandler said, "Ellis could make a dog laugh". My favorite story is that after he had a serious heart attack and was rushed to the E.R., he asked Chandler to go check the odometer on the ambulance so he could turn it in on his expense report. He's featured prominently in Kevin Kerrane's book Dollar Sign On The Muscle; if you haven't read it you should.
