Happy Reds birthday, Mel Queen!

Queen

March 26, 1942

Mel Queen’s dad (also named Mel) played for the Yankees and Pirates. The younger Mel played for the Reds and Angels. Neither really had an enormous impact—son went 20-17, 3.14 ERA in seven years; dad went 27-40, 5.09 in eight years. The younger Queen also managed the Blue Jays for five games in 1997, and his brother-in-law also played pro ball: Jim Lonborg.
