Happy Reds birthday, Craig Worthington!


April 17, 1965

I love the concept behind Topps’ All-Star Rookie team, but it is not always an indicator of future greatness. Craig Worthington did well for the second-place Orioles in 1989, hitting 15 home runs and driving in 70. But he never came close to those numbers again in his career. He only played ten games for the Reds in 1995, but did manage to hit the ball out once in 18 at-bats. He hit 33 home runs and drove in 144 runs in 393 career games.
