Happy Reds birthday, Ed Bailey!

Bailey

April 15, 1931

Ed Bailey was named to five All-Star rosters during his career—three with the Reds and another two with the Giants. He had a reputation as a fine defensive catcher as well as a slugger. His 28 home runs in 1956 was the fifth best on the Reds team, behind Frank Robinson, Wally Post, Ted Kluszewski, and Gus Bell.
