Baseball Almanac Top Quote

When Oddibe McDowell made his Major League debut on May 19, 1985 , he took the field wearing #0 , but he wasn't the first Texas Rangers player to use that unique number. Do you know who wore it before Oddibe? [ Answer ]

No Major League baseball player before, or since, has had the first name Oddibe, which is pronounced "oh-ta-bee" - enabling Chris Berman (ESPN Analyst) to refer to him on radio / TV as Oddibe "Young Again" McDowell.
