Nomar looks to have had the best birthday. However, if you look at the results of the second game of his team's double header (allowing 5 in the 9th to lose 5-4) , you have to wonder if he still had any interest in celebrating. Ouch.

    i remember darryl strawberry had some productive outings on his various kids' birthdays. but i that's not something we can verify here.

  2. It would be interesting to see who had the most career Hits, RBI, Wins, Saves, etc. on their birthdays. It would also be interesting to do a collective comparison of players' performances on their birthdays versus on other days. (for those born April through September.)
