Birthday Project

Since 2005, I've been working on a project with the goal of trying to acquire an autograph through the mail (or in-person, if I'm so lucky) from every living big league ballplayer who was born on my birthday, February 19. Through the end of the 2016 season, there have been 25 big leaguers born on the 19th of February who were alive when the project began, and I have received autographs from 19 of them. These are who I have received, in alphabetical order:

*Died since project began.

These are who I still need:

Kevin Chapman, born 1988

Brad Kilby, born 1983

Daniel Mengden, born 1993

Dan Otero, born 1985

Josh Reddick, born 1987

Michael Schwimer, born 1986
