I know this is a common name thrown around on this board, but Shoeless Joe Jackson is actually the correct response in this instance.

Not a single decent player?

I see others listing multiple HOF and that is cool. I am in a family of 6 and not a single one of us shares a birthday with a HOF (until Piazza makes it for my DOB).

So my other family member best, in my opinion, are the following:
Wife - Dec 10th: Jimmy Johnston (Gregorio Petit was born the same day)
1st Born - Sept 12: Charlie Keller or Mickey Lolich (possibly Freddie Freeman, but too early to know)
2nd Born - Dec 12th: Orlando Hudson or Ralph Garr
3rd Born - Jan 13th: Kevin Mitchell or Bob Forsch
4th Born - July 6th: Manny Machado
Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:19-21

I'm going to say Chris Sabo before checking the BR page.

And now I'm going to check the BR page!

It might be Phil Nevin! My vote is Sabo. Those goggles are dreamy.

Me and my dad have the same birthday. For "my" generation, the best would be Chase Utley. For "his" generation, the best would be Chico Cardenas.

However, my favorite would be Rebel Oakes. His T206 card was the first pre-war card I ever bought.

Cool thread!

April 15, 2 best players are probably Willie Davis and Jeromy Burnitz.

Best athlete born same exact day as me, April 15, 1965 is former Pittsburgh Penguin Kevin Stevens.
