    3/9/1995 I don't know how to figure out what the braves did during spring training. But it was the offseason after their world series victory.
    Rest in Peace Jose Fernandez (1992-2016)

    Ed Swartwood, and minor leaguer Joe Hauser MIGHT have been a good big leaguer
    Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

    Im sure nothing was happening on March 26th of 1975. All I know my grandfather got his work scheldule for Shea Stadium [lol] My mother was April 5th, 1947 and usually around opening day (she grew up at Ebbets field, my grandfather wouldnt let her go to the polo grounds, and was at every opening day at Shea till she got married in 68). Gil Hodges gave her his 1st baseman mit as a birthday present.

    My Birthday is May 14, 1957. My Yankees were idle.
    As I probably have told you guys a few times, In 1967 on that day Mickey Mantle hit his 500th homerun with some 10 year old blond hair blue eyed boy in the stands getting the thrill of his young life.

    Welcome back ARod. Hope you are a Yankee forever.

    I was born the same month that Josef Stalin died. (I won't editorialize, but my views on that event are, I'm confident, shared by the overwhelming majority of this thread's users.) I was born 18 days after he checked out. That was about 22 days too early to have been part of the N.Y. Giants' 1953 baseball season.

    I believe that their world Series win happened when you were 7 months old. So your birth was before, not after that win.

    October 3, 1954 The Blue Jays weren't even thought of yet. I'll have to look up and see what the Cardinals were up to on that day.

    The Cards didn't make the post season that year so they were idle, however, future Cardinal pitcher, Dennis Eckersley was born on this day as well.

    You share a birthday with Kevin Seitzer and Negro Leaguer Lester Lockett. 24 years before you were born Mickey Mantle supposedly hit a 660' HR in an exhibition game. You are about a month younger than Livan Hernandez, 9 days older than Scott Rolen. Frank Robinson was hired as manager 13 days before you were born,

    <My mother was April 5th, 1947 and usually around opening day (she grew up at Ebbets field, my grandfather wouldnt let her go to the polo grounds, and was at every opening day at Shea till she got married in 68).>

    She shares a birthday with Bill Dinneen, Wid Conroy, Ron Hansen. The ML pension plan was adopted 4 days before she was born, the All American Girls Professional Baseball League allowed sidearm pitching 2 days before she was born, Leo Durocher was suspended for the rest of the season when she was 4? days old, the Dodgers bought Jackie Robinson's contract from Montreal when she was 5 days old, and we all know what Jackie did five days after that

    You share a birthday with Ed Walsh, Earle Combs, Tony Perez, Dennis Martinez AND Roy Halladay. McDougald hit Herb Score with the line drive a week before you were born. You are two days younger than Lou Whitaker and two weeks older than Kirk Gibson.
