Grady Hatton (89) -OF of the late '40s and early '50s. Later managed some very bad teams. Grady, if you're reading this, happy 89th!
Frankie Baumholtz- Came up with the Reds; after a few years was traded to the Cubs, where he had his best years. Good hitter for average, but didn't have enough power to make it big as a corner OF.

Jose Cardenal (68) Jose didn't like spring training games, and there are a number of great stories about excuses he used to get out of them. My faves:
1. His uniform wasn't tight enough
2. A cricket in his room kept him up all night.
3. His eyelids were stuck together.
He was a Reds coach for a bit later on...
