BR has a birthdate of 1925, we have 1922 here. --Jeff 17:17, 7 December 2007 (EST)
This is a case where Minoso was actually younger than traditionally thought. Recent research confirms that 1925 is the most likely date of birth, although he was listed as born in 1922 during his playing career. This affects how much time in the Major Leagues he lost due to the color barrier, and how old he was during those 1976 and 1980 appearances. --Philippe 00:58, 8 December 2007 (EST)
