Default JUST FOR FUN: Which MLB Player was born closest to your birthday?

Using BaseballResearch.Com,

I found that Jim Tracy (DOB: 12/31/55) was born closest to me (01/06/56)


just another useless waste of time? Or more fanatical research?

Steve,just ask "What baseball player was born on your birthday"on Google. It will bring up a link to Baseball Almanac which lists all the players born in your birth year.

I was born April 15, 1965, closest MLB players are Craig Worthington April 17, 1965 and Jeff DeWillis April 13, 1965.

Former NHL star Kevin Stevens was born the same day as me.

Orioles(yeah!) pitcher Jeff Schneider and Twins/Padres utility infielder Chuck Baker were born the day after I was.

Astros/Giants 2nd baseman Rob Andrews, with whom I share a name, was born six days after me.



Edited to add...a bit of research on BR's sister sites told me that not a single player in MLB, NBA, NFL, or NFL history was born on the same day as I was. But Shoelass Joe died exactly a year before I was born.

Steve- someone already gave you one option, but that will only tell you who was born on the same Date of any year.

On BaseballResearch.Com, click on the link 'Happy Birthday/Born on this Day' - then plug your date in the search and, if nobody was born that day (the results show the year each player was born), search the day before and the day after and so on.


Kind of fun, I thought.

MLB player Bobby Rose, who I'm not familiar with, was born one day after me. Musician Billy Corgan was born three days after me forty miles away. And in the, uh... entertainment business, Fallon was born two days before me.

Chris Turner born same day.

My "I guess I'm old now" moment was when the Indians got Travis Fryman. Excellent player for the Tigers, the papers were writing about how he was pretty much "Over the Hill" and "nearly done." I looked him up and he is two days younger than me. Ouch!

I'm halfway between Chuck Knoblauch and Derrick May. So basically a misplayed short fly to shallow left and then a bad throw to first.

Alan Fowlkes was born 4 days after me in August of 1958.
Bob Gamble died on the day I was born. He was a one game wonder in 1888 in the American Association. Pitched one game and lost, giving up 10 runs in a complete game. walking 3 while striking out 2. He also committed two errors to aid his defeat.

Amazingly he appears on an Old Judge card.

I was born on the same day as former pitcher Barry Manuel, and we were born less than 50 miles apart. I talked to him at a Spring Training game many years ago and I showed him my driver's license and we got a chuckle out of it.

Assuming you mean exact day and not merely the date, which obviously would return tons of results, Alan Benes was the day before me. Jan 21st 1972.

If I have to amend birth year, Jake Arrieta was born 3 days before me. However closest to my birthdate is Jeremy Hefner, whom I've never heard of, was born two days after I was. I'm going to play Price Is Right rules.

James "Buster" Douglas, onetime undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the World, was born on the very same day that I was born. April 7, 1960. He upset Mike Tyson in Tokyo. Don't know if he could swing a bat though....
