February 16th, 1952

Barry Foote Born

Foote was a catcher who bounced around in the seventies and eighties, he made the World Series as a Yankee in 1981 but otherwise had a relatively uneventful career although he did once lead the league in sacrifice flies (with twelve in 1974). I bring him up because today is, how I can put this, rather a bodily day. In addition to Barry Foote, we also have Jerry Hairston, Sr. and my personal favorite Frank "Ribs" Raney. Meanwhile, we'll have to wait for the birthdays Bill Hands, Hal Toenes, Tsuyoshi Shinjo and, of course, Rollie Fingers.
