Happy Reds birthday, Cesar Cedeno!
February 25, 1951
Cesar Cedeno was an absolute beast for the Houston Astros in the 1970s. Four All-Star selections, five Gold Glove Awards, 163 home runs in twelve seasons with the ‘Stros. He cooled off quite a bit starting around 1977, and by the time he came to Cincinnati, he was a shadow of his former self. In four years, he hit 30 home runs and drove in 173 for the Reds while batting .265. The Reds traded him to the Cardinals in 1985, and he finished up his career with the Dodgers in 1986.
