• Baseball Players Born On Thanksgiving

    Posted by on November 23rd, 2011 · Comments (0)

    Using the data from here and here, I was able to identify some of the baseball players born since 1900 and who were actually born on the Thanksgiving Day holiday.  Here they are:

    Tommy McCraw
    Denny Riddleberger
    Ricky Ledée
    Yusmeiro Petit
    Billy Rogell
    Rafael Santo Domingo
    José López
    Jarrod Parker
    Bob Finley
    Randy Veres
    Tavo Álvarez
    Lefty Gomez
    Ed Weiland
    Mike Moore
    Cal Howe
    John Harrell
    Mike Scioscia
    Tim Laker
    Chris Eddy
    Lynn King
    Russ Meers
    Pat Rooney
    Walt Weiss
    Scott Sheldon
    Terry Burrows
    Pedro Astacio
    Bill Currie

    Of course, some of these players were not born in the United States – and, the Thanksgiving Holiday means nothing in their place of birth.

    But, in any event, there are your “20th Century Thanksgiving Baby All-Stars.” Gobble, gobble…
