Born on this date, Alex Grammas.
"I was 17 years old when I first came up with the Cardinals, just up from high school. My first night on the bench, Henry Aaron was up with a couple of guys on. I liked Henry Aaron a lot growing up. I let out with one of those 'Come on, Henry!' or something to that effect. Everyone naturally looked at me and Alex Grammas came over and said, 'You know, up here in the big leagues, we tend to cheer for our players, not the opposition.'" - Tim McCarver
