As we "celebrate" the Eve of February 1st (I realize there is no such thing but) there is always something to "celebrate". We embark on the shortest month of the year and the myriad of 2009 cards are starting to come out.
This is a short post to "celebrate" the shortest month with a comment about the shortest baseball player every to make a plate appearance - three foot seven inch Eddie Gaedel in 1951. It was a just one of those media stunts by Bill Veeck the then owner of the St. Louis Browns. Happy February to all !
