Eddie Miksis

Born on today's date, Eddie Miksis.

"I'm pitching one day against Brooklyn in the old Ebbets Field and we're ahead 2-0 in the bottom of the ninth. They got the bases loaded, two outs. Then somebody hits this fly to right center, and over goes Eddie Miksis, who was our centerfielder. But he falls into a hole. Really, there was a manhole out there and the groundskeeper forgot to put the top on it. Miksis falls right through, three runs score and we lose 3-2. I looked out there and thought a midget was playing centerfield." - Warren Hacker
