Two huge ones here. Nolan Ryan and Ernie Banks.

Ryan was my favorite growing up.

Jeff Cirillo, who, interestingly enough was my favorite player on the Brewers for several years, was born two years before I was. Darned good pure hitter and a great defensive third baseman. I always felt he got robbed out of a few Gold Gloves, and now the defensive metrics show I was probably right. Ken Caminiti won the 1997 NL Gold Glove at third base with a -1.0 dWAR, while Cirillo didn't get it at third in the AL with a +2.1 dWAR at third (Matt Williams at least had a 1.9 dWAR for the Indians). In 1998, Cirillo had a 1.9 dWAR, but Scott Rolen of the Phillies had a 1.7, and won it. In 2001, Cirillo had a 2.2 dWAR, but Rolen again won it, this time with a 1.2 dWAR. Oh well. Cirillo was a career .296 hitter. He hit .311 in his first 8 seasons, but hit the wall at age 32 when he went to Seattle.

My other choice is Matt Kemp. But I'm a Brewers fan, so Cirillo it is. Cirillo and Kemp both made two All Star Games. The only other player to ever make the All Star Game born on September 23 was Peter Harnisch, one time.

People that are into astrology may make more of this, but I find it interesting how some dates are stacked with great players and HOF then other dates you would really have to question using the word "great" even when they are the best for that particular birthday.

One list I found online from 2011 gave these numbers for the amount of HOF by month:

25 -- April
24 -- October
23 -- December
22 -- May
21 -- September
21 -- August
19 -- November
19 -- July
18 -- March
15 -- January
14 -- February
11 -- June

With someone stating:
Quote:
As best as I can tell, the record for HOF-ers appears to be May 14th with 5.

Earl Combs
Tony Perez
Ed Walsh
Alex Pompez (NeL Pioneer)
JL Wilkinson (NeL Pioneer)

Two dates have [four] inductees, April 2nd and April 6th

April 2nd:
Luke Appling
Hughie Jennings
Don Sutton
Al Barlick (Umpire)

April 6th:
Mickey Cochrane
Ernie Lombardi
Bert Blyleven (2011)
Smokey Joe Williams

I'd say Mark Buehrle and Gavvy Cravath for March 23.


OT: One of the most depressing moments of my life was when the Tribe let go of Travis Fryman, saying he was over-the-hill, and I looked and he's two days YOUNGER than I am. That's when my dream of becoming a major league shortstop ended.

Mark Buehrle would constitute the best player I went to High School with.

He was a senior when I was a freshman so no interaction nor did I know who he was. Now he is possibly going to retire so it does make me feel like I am cheated that he gets to retire and I still have several more years of work ahead of me. Oh well.

I was surprised by how many guys were listed for Dec 11th, not surprisingl was how many of them were journeymen, more or less "pluggers" just like me. Three recognizable names of players with notable careers popped out; Derek Bell. Lee Maye and Bill Nicholoson. At the bottom of the listing was one HOF'r Old Hoss Radbourn.
