Feb 21-23: Happy Bdays
Happy birthday John Shelby. “T-bone” was an OF who played 7 seasons for the Orioles from 1981-87. John was a 1st round pick who wore #37 (thirty-seven!) John was an excellent defensive player who batted .239-31-138 during his Orioles tenure. John was traded during the 87’ season to the Dodgers in exchange for Tom Niedenfuer. John was a 2-time World Series champion. In retirement John got into coaching and is currently the Orioles 1B coach. John also has a son who plays for the White Sox organization. Happy 52nd Mr. Shelby.
Happy birthday Bobby Bonilla. Bobby played 2 seasons for the Orioles from 1995-96. Bobby came to the Orioles in a trade with the Mets in exchange for Damon Buford and Alex Ochoa…a trade that proved to be a steal for the O’s. Bobby played OF-3B-DH for the Orioles and wore #26. Bobby hit .300-38-162 during his Oriole tenure. Bobby retired after the 2001 season as a 6-time All-Star. Happy 47th Mr. Bonilla.
Happy birthday Terry Allen. Terry played 4 seasons for the Redskins from 1995-98. #21 rushed for 4,086 yards during his tenure and was a Pro Bowler in 96‘. During that 96’ season Terry had 1,547 yards and 21TD’s…can you say fantasy stud? Terry is one the 70 Greatest Redskins. Happy 42nd Mr. Allen.
Cheers and Hail
