November 21 – Happy Birthday Todd Erdos

After spending parts of four seasons pitching in relief for the Yankees and Padres, Erdos was signed as a free agent by Boston after the 2000 season. He appeared in 10 games for the Red Sox in 2001 and was then released. He was born on this date in 1973, in Washington, PA. I also found a Boston Brave player named Andy High who was born on this day. High was the semi-regular starter at third for the Braves in both 1926 and ’27. His nickname was actually “Knee.” Get it, Knee High? The most famous ballplayer celebrating a birthday today is the great Stan Musial, who turns 91-years-old today.
