Should we maybe just have a birthday thread that a mod could sticky at the top of the board or something?

I'm more sentimental than most of you, and I get choked up when I remember the Marc Krauss Era.

The Marc Krauss era was almost as good as the Jeff Baker era.

Wherever Roger Weaver is today I hope he's still wearing those enormous clear plastic aviators.

I thought Jerry Ujdur was going to be a good one. I didn't know about BABIP back then.

I don't see how it's possible that Jerry Ujdur is on the same rookie card as a guy who is now 61.

Jerry ujdur went to the same high school as me. I saw him officiating high school basketball a few years back, doesnt look like someone you'd expect to have been a pro athlete

God, how I hated Milt Cuyler.

I still remember the Joe Falls' article pumping him up to being the next great Tigers' star.

Paul Calvert looks like the kind of guy that all the ladies fought over.

I was at a game in 1994 when he was a double away from the cycle. That 1994 team was my least favorite. Although, from memory, they had a lot of switch hitters.

Both catchers switch hit, Tony Phillips, Cuyler, and Junior Felix.

So on a given day they could have they could run 4 switch hitters out there.

Milt Cuyler was the first autograph I ever got. I was probably 7-8 at the time...my dad took me to a baseball card show where Cuyler was signing autographs. My dad always made me ask the player to sign something for me, rather than just sticking a card in his face.

I remember listening to a Tigers game on the Orioles radio station with Jon Miller broadcasting. He called him Kiki Cuyler. It was such an obvious nickname but it sounded funny when Miller said it.
