Some big names in baseball have called May 14th their birthday.
Hall of Famer Ed Walsh was born May 14, 1881.
Another Hall of Famer, Earle Combs (the Kentucky Colonel) was born on May 14, 1899.
Tony Perez, yet another Hall of Famer was born on May 14, 1942 in Cuba.
Dick Howser, the only man to ever manage the Royals to a World Series title, was born on May 14, 1936.
Dennis Martinez, El Presidente, was born on May 14, 1955.
Pat Borders, MVP of the 1992 World Series, was born on May 14, 1963.
Phillies Ace Roy Halladay, who is gunning for Cy Young #2 this year, was born on May 14, 1977.
And possibly the worst first baseman in the history of The Menlo School was born on May 14, 1972 in Willimantic Connecticut.
I'm glad to share a birthday with such good company.
