Happy birthday, Buddy Bell

Happy birthday to Buddy Bell, who turns 57 today...

Buddy Bell was my favorite player as a kid, a guy who come about 2 healthy seasons short of having a legit claim as a Hall of Famer.  I was really bummed out when he was traded to the Reds for Duane Walker and a PTBNL, although that trade worked out pretty well for Texas, since the PTBNL was Jeff Russell.
