Happy birthday to me (and Rick Sutcliffe). Since we share a birthday, I thought I’d put up his tree. This is actually a larger tree of the Joe Carter tree we featured awhile back. Here Rick is traded from Cleveland to the Cubs.
Denis Boucher was selected by the Rockies in the ‘92 Expansion Draft.
Glenallen Hill is best known (to me at least) for this mammoth home run at Wrigley. It actually landed on the roof of the building across Waveland. Hittracker has pegged the flight path at over 500’ if unobstructed. Over the years I’ve convinced myself I was watching WGN that day, but I think I might have only seen it on BBTN.
