Billy Ripken Born
Ah, Billy Ripken, the Dave Sisler of the Ripken family. Of course, as I've illustrated before, being the lousier brother of a pair hardly puts one in exclusive company. All that being said, there is perhaps no more complete list of lousy brothers--all of whom have played for one team--than "The Crappy Brother" list maintained by the fine staff at Dodger Blues. So, as we approach the holidays, please, take time out to remember those poor, less talented souls, doomed to play in their shadow of their siblings.
