Default What Are the Odds?

I never realized until a moment ago that Stan Musial and Ken Griffey, Jr. were both born in the same small town - Donora, PA - which currently has a population of fewer than 5,000 people.

The only way I know that stat is that all three of us share the same birthdate.

Both left handed, both in the Hall, both outfielders.

And here's a fun one about Musial, he'd exactly 1,815 hits at home and 1,815 on the road. Exactly 39 stolen bases at home and 39 on the road. Mr Consistent.

On BBR, Mike Cuellar & Dave McNally are the most 'similar' pitchers to each other.

In 1970, the both started 40 games, won 24 games and each hit a post-season grand slam.
