Congratulations to Arthur Rhodes, the oldest member of the 2011 World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals.
It is my pleasure to tease everyone with a few members of the 1991 Baltimore Orioles (67-95)
and St. Louis Cardinals (84-78)
as an Arthur Rhodes Tribute.
On the 1991 Baltimore Orioles:
Ripken brothers (Cal and the other one); Mike Flanagan (RIP); Bob Melvin (Oakland A's Manager); former Springfield Lanphier graduate Tim Hulett; Mike Mussina (future HOF candidate); Glen Davis; and Dwight Evans. Evans is now 60. See entire roster.
On the 1991 St. Louis Cardinal:
Cris Capenter (not Chris
Carpenter); Bath Balyki graduate Mark Clark; Jamie Moyer (who last pitched in 2010 and may try it again in 2012 at 49 years of age); Pedro Guerrero (of OJ Simpson telephone 911 call fame);
HOF shortstop Ozzie Smith and Tom Pagnozzi. See entire roster.
Congratulations Arthur Rhodes and thank you
for the inspiration to check out the 1991 rosters of your first team and your last team!
