Frank Sigafoos had one of the greatest names in Tigers' history.  He wasn't much of a player, but he could open beer cans with his nose.

Today's Tiger birthdays (3/22): Matt Sinatro (58), Marv Owen (112, played for Tigers 1931 & 1933-37, died 1991).

Last year at this time, I offered 1003 2/3 points to anyone who produced an image of Matt Sinatro (13 games in 1989) with the Tigers.  No one collected.  This year, to drum up interest, I offer 1007 5/8 points, a congratulatory mention in tomorrow's birthday post, and the newly created "Frank Sigafoos Memorial Award".

Today's Tiger birthdays (3/23): None.  Not a one.  In their 118 year history, the Tigers have never fielded a player, coach, or manager born on March 23.

How many points for producing a picture of this player?

That's kind of interesting.  Same birth date (not year) for successive owners.
