Happy Reds birthday, Jeff Treadway!
January 22, 1963
You don’t see the hidden ball trick very often anymore. Jeff Treadway successfully tricked runners twice while playing second base for the Atlanta Braves, victimizing Marvell Wynne and Eric Yelding with the subterfuge. In two seasons with the Reds, he batted .270 with four homers and 27 RBI. In addition to the Reds and Braves, Treadway also played for the Indians, Dodgers, and Expos.
