December 16 – Happy Birthday Charles Gipson
After spending his first five big league seasons with the Mariners, this speedy utility player was signed as a free agent by the Yankees in 2003. He saw little action during that year and was released by New York that September. His only two hits while in pinstripes and the first of the two RBIs he drove in as a Yankee came off then Toronto ace Roy Halladay.
The most significant pinstripe moment of the only other Yankee to be born on this date also involved a star player. This outfielder actually replaced Mr. October in the third inning of an October Yankee game.
