3/15-3/18 Happy Bdays
Happy birthday Harold Baines. Harold played 7 seasons with the Orioles from 1993-2000. An Eastern Shore native, Harold hit .301 with 107HR’s and 378 RBI’s during his O’s tenure. His best season came in 99’ when he hit .322-24-81. Harold deserves to be in the HOF as he finished his career with 384 HR’s, 1,628 RBI’s and a career average of .289…I think it’s safe to say he also did it steroid-free. In retirement Harold got into coaching and is currently the 1B coach for the White Sox. Happy 51st Mr. Baines.
Happy birthday Todd Yoder. Todd has played the last 4 seasons for the Redskins and is currently a free agent. Todd is an excellent blocking TE who has appeared in 61 games, also filling in well at the H-back and fullback spots when called upon. Not known for his pass-catching, Todd has caught 6 TD’s for the Redskins. Todd has also turned into a fan favorite who has made funny videos over at the Cooley Zone. I hope to see Todd back next season. Happy 32nd Mr. Yoder.
Happy birthday John Hall. John played 4 seasons for the Redskins from 2003-2006, appearing in 40 games during his tenure. John was a pretty decent kicker who wore #10 and made 78.3% of his FG’s as a Redskin. John’s best season came in 03’ when he made 25 FG’s and scored 101 pts. John was released by the Redskins in 2006 and retired shortly after due to multiple leg injuries…not a good thing to have when you are a kicker. In retirement John opened up a restaurant in Florida. Happy 36th Mr. Hall.
Cheers and Hail
