Happy Reds birthday, Woodie Fryman!

Fryman

April 12, 1940

Woodie Fryman only played 17 games for the Reds in 1977, and only O-Pee-Chee issued a card showing him in a ridulously airbrushed Cincinnati cap. His regular Topps issue in 1977 had Fryman with the Expos, while 1978 reflected his offseason move to the Cubs. I was unfortunately unable to locate the O-Pee-Chee issue before today, but it is on my radar now. I also have been unable to locate any actual photo of Fryman wearing a Reds cap.

  1. They said Fryman who owned a tobacco farm in Kentucky- put his baseball salary in the bank every year and they lived off the money the farm brought in.
