Fred Valentine, 2014 Orioles Alumni Postcards
Here's a few more interesting tidbits about Fred Valentine, courtesy of the SABR Biography Project:
-His aunt nicknamed him "Squeaky" as a toddler, and the moniker stuck throughout his life.
-Fred is ambidextrous, which was an asset when he played quarterback in high school football.
-He graduated from Tennessee Agricultural and Industrial College (a historically black college, known today as Tennessee State University) in three and a half years.
I'm glad I got a chance to meet a former player who had a greater impact off the field than on it.
