HOFer Left Gomez was born in Rodeo, California on this date in 1908.
 
 

 Judging by these quotes Lefty was a humble man with a good sense of humor.

Cartoonist Charles "Sparky" Schulz was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota on this date in 1922.

Readers of this blog know that I've been a fan of Schulz's Peanuts (a name he never liked by the way) for my entire life.  Sparky drew the strip for nearly 50 years from October 1950 until just before his death in  January 2000.
