today’s baseball birthday

Moonlight Graham, born on this date in 1877.

There’s some question about the date, perhaps. Wikipedia says 28 December 1879 and 12 November 1879, but BaseballReference.com says 12 November 1877. SABR agrees with BaseballReference, so Happy Birthday Moonlight!

Moonlight doesn’t have much of a career line. Two innings played with the NY Giants on 29 June 1905.

Not enough time for a proper entry on this, in 3 minutes before the commute. But Happy Birthday Moonlight!
