Did you know (?) that:
+ Jim Beattie and George Steinbrenner share the same birthday.
+ There have been 88 men to play for the Yankees who were born in the month of May – the only month in the year to have less than 100 men born (in it) who went on to wear the pinstripes.
+ The only “Leap Year Baby” to ever play for the Yankees was Terrence Long.
+ There’s never been someone, yet, born in 1985 to play for the Yankees.
Did you know that Alan Embree and Mark Wohlers were born on the same exact month/day/year? Bernie Williams and Denny Neagle were born on the same month/day/year as well. Ditto Clay Bellinger and Gary Sheffield.
Did you know that Tony Clark, Ramiro Mendoza and Andy Pettitte were all born on the same exact month/day/year?
Fun stuff. (Thanks Lee!)
