Arlo,
I like your thinking. I didn't have McKay but I did have somebody else.

PS Notice I didn't say "Baseball Hall of Famer".

Nobody got the three I was looking for which were Earl Averill (4/16/29), Hoyt Wilhelm (4/23/52) and Ace Parker (4/30/37).

Ace didn't have much of a baseball career but he did enjoy success in the National Football League and the All-American Football Conference. He was elected to the Football Hall of Fame in 1972. Ironically two of the football teams he played for were the Brooklyn Dodgers (1937-41) and the New York Yankees (1946).

Since Arlo came up with Dave McKay I counted his answer as correct.

Sneaky! ;-D

I was so sure McKay was who you were looking for that I didn't even consider Parker...

Nice question!
