I saw this on MLB Network the other day and it looked like fun. Find the best position player and pitcher born on your birthday and decide which one would do the best.
My pairing is Ian Kinsler matching up against Carl Hubbell. I don't think Kinsler would have had a chance against old "High Pockets".

Looks like I'd have Bullet Rogan (who?... HOF'er?) facing himself. I like his chances.

Crawford's career WAR as a Ray: 35.6 (7.0 in 2010)
Crawford's career WAR after leaving the Rays: 3.6 (0.9 in Boston)

And this was a guy that had six 4+ WAR seasons in a 7 year span. Lol

Bullet Rogan was one of the greatest two-way players. Had a 2.65 ERA in 1500 IP and hit .338/.413/.521 in 2376 PA. He played all three outfield positions and 2nd base

There are not many players that were born on my birthday (June 22) and only 1 HOFer, Carl Hubbell.

I like a friend's birthday match up
Feb 24 gives us Honus Wagner vs. one of his teammates, Wilbur Cooper. I'm sure they knew each other well.
