Happy Birthday, Duane Kuiper

Kuiper Peterson CardsHappy Birthday to my old Cleveland Indians teammate Duane Kuiper. On August 27, 1975, Duane hit a single to right in the bottom of the fourth off Jesse Jefferson, driving in Alan Ashby. We beat the White Sox 5-0 that day, and Duane went 1-for-3. I pitched a complete game for my 10th win of the season. Thanks again, rookie! Also thinking of the extraordinary Lou Gehrig, who was born on this day 112 years ago.
