Happy birthday Shawon Dunston!

This won’t be a daily feature (or should it be?), but I can’t let Shawon Dunston‘s birthday go by unnoticed. One of my favorite players from my youth is 49 years old today. He was a great TTM signer during his tenure with the Cubs. Dunston was the first pick overall in the 1982 draft, ahead of notable players Dwight Gooden, Bret Saberhagen, Jimmy Key, and Cecil Fielder. And Sam Horn.

Plus, who could forget the Shawon-O-Meter?
