Happy Birthday, Buster!!

It’s a been a while since we’ve done this…here are your mediocre athlete’s born on May 20th:

  • Austin Kearns (MLB):  A .258 career hitter with just over 100 career home runs.
  • Todd Stottlemyre (MLB):  Stuck around for 14 big league seasons and finished with an ERA+ of  100.  He’s 45 today.
  • Ruben Boumtje-Boumtje (NBA):  One of the greater names in NBA history, Ruben is a seven-footer from Cameroon with 43 points in 44 career games.  Brutal.
  • Hal Newhouser (MLB):  Newhouser was not mediocre, winning back-to-back MVPs with the Detroit Tigers in the 1940s.  Dude’s a Hall of Famer and an absolute stud.
  • Sadaharu Oh (Japanese Baseball):  Not only is the guy mentioned in a Beastie Boys lyric, he has 868 career home runs and once had 55 in a single season, both records in Japan.  He is turning 70.
  • Joe Cocker (musician):  Cocker turns 66 today.  He’s mediocre as a music-man.
  • Cher (musiciain):  Ughhhh.
  • Bronson Pinchot (actor):  He played Balki Bartokmous on the 1980s sitcom, Perfect Strangers.  Not sure what he’s up to today.
