Happy birthday, Dave Liddell

Happy birthday to Dave Liddell, who turns 43 today.

Never heard of him?  He's a modern day Moonlight Graham...on June 3, 1990, he came into the game for the Mets in the 8th inning, New York trailing 8-1, to pinch hit for Mackey Sasser.  He singled and came around to score, caught the bottom of the 8th, and was left on the on deck circle when the Mets went down 1-2-3 in the top of the 9th.

He never played in the majors again, ending up going 1 for 1 with a 1.000 batting average.
