Happy Birthday - 12/6

Happy Birthday to ~

RHP Franklin Perez (17)
Ranked by Baseball America as the #15 top international prospect, Perez signed with the Astros during the July 2nd international signing period. He is from Venezuela.

Two former Astros have birthdays today as well ~

LHP Jay Dahl (died June 21, 1965 at 19)
Dahl's entire major league career consisted of pitching two and a third innings for the Colt .45's at the ripe old age of 17. The game featured an all rookie line-up, including such notables as Joe Morgan, Jimmy Wynn and Rusty Staub. For the story of his all too short life, his tragic death and the aftermath, go here.

C Kevin Cash (37)
Cash signed with Houston as a free agent in January 2010 and played in 20 games for Houston, hitting .204/.271/.333, before being traded to Boston in July of that year for Angel Sanchez.
