Although it is not related to any Cuban, let’s go with a rather curious trivia. In the history of the Major Leagues, there are only six hitters who hit a home run on their 40th birthday. Bob Thurman (1957), Joe Morgan (1983), Wade Boggs (1998), Tony Phillips (1999), Chipper Jones (2012) and Alex Rodríguez, who did it on a day like today in 2015. Of that group, Morgan homered twice.

Quote of the day:

“Be on time, bust your butt, play smart, and have some laughs while you’re at it.”
