Happy Reds birthday, Eddie Kasko!
June 27, 1931
Eddie Kasko was in the Opening Day starting lineup for the Reds from 1960-1962; in 1960 he started at second base, while in 1961 and 1962 he was positioned at shortstop. He was on the roster for the National League All-Stars in 1961, when two All-Star games were held each year. He did not play in the first contest, hosted in San Francisco, but collected a single off Don Schwall in the sixth inning in his only at-bat in the second game at Fenway Park in Boston.
