Happy Reds birthday, Chris Stynes!
January 19, 1973
The city of Cincinnati has a love affair with players who demonstrate hustle on the diamond, like Pete Rose, Chris Sabo, Ryan Freel, and Chris Stynes. Stynes was a versatile player who played every position but pitcher, catcher, and first base during his career. He spent four seasons with the Reds, hitting 26 home runs and driving in 109 runs in 364 games. He also played for the Royals, Red Sox, Cubs, Rockies, and Pirates. In 1996, while playing for Kansas City, Stynes stole three consecutive bases in one inning.
