Happy Reds birthday, Bob Shirley!
June 25, 1954
Bob Shirley was a spot-starter for the 1982 Reds, starting 20 of the 41 games in which he appeared. 1982 was a dismal year for the Reds; after finishing 1981 with the best record in the majors (but missing the playoffs due to the inane split season rules), the team finished dead last in the NL West with 101 losses. Only the Twins lost more games.
