May 1 – Happy Birthday Brandon Claussen
This native of Rapid City, SD is one of only two all-time Yankee roster members I could find who celebrate their birthday on May 1. Claussen appeared in only one game for New York, getting a start and a victory during the 2003 season. That victory however, was not Brandon’s only contribution to helping the Yankees get into that season’s World Series. He was also included in the July 2003 trade with the Reds that brought Aaron Boone to the Yankees.
Claussen shares his May 1 birthday with another pitcher who played for the Yankees over a century earlier.
