In all my years of baseball fandom, I've had numerous players I enjoyed watching and following - Roger Clemens, Tim Wakefield, Nomar Garciaparra, Dustin Pedroia, Mookie Betts, Rafael Devers - the list goes on and on. Despite my fandom, I couldn't tell you much about them personally, especially their birthdays. There is one Red Sox player whose birthday I always remember, only because it happens to be mine as well.
Happy birthday Chris Sale! Last year you spent the day getting Tommy John surgery. This year you'll come back and hopefully give the Red Sox a much needed boost towards a surprising playoff run!
