Happy Reds birthday, Duane Walker!

Walker

March 13, 1957

According to his 1983 Fleer card, Duane Walker was named “Best Hustler” in the Southern League in 1979. Several of his cards mention his feat of hitting two home runs in one game off Houston’s Nolan Ryan in 1982. The Reds traded him to the Rangers for hometown hero Buddy Bell in 1985.
