OK, I posted the wrong birthday yesterday. I shouldn't be allowed to post at 4:00 in the morning. So a belated Happy birthday to German Rivera and Happy Birthday for real to Bob Gallagher (see yesterday).
No future Astros, and only one former Astro with a birthday today ~
3B German Rivera (52)
Rivera came to Houston in July of 1985 as part of the trade with Los Angeles for Enos Cabell. In 13 games for Houston, he hit .194/.275/.306. His career minor league average was .281/.331/.432. Rivera continued to play for the Mexican League for several years after his major league career was over.
