Dave May was born in Delaware on this day in 1943. He broke with the Orioles in 1967 but had a very difficult time getting playing time on a team that had Frank Robinson in right, Paul Blair in center and Don Buford in left. He was also behind Marv Rettmund and Curt Motton, a couple of other very promising young players.
In 1970, May was traded to Milwaukee and that's where he enjoyed some good seasons. His best year was 1973: .303 average, 25 HR & 93 RBI.
Nevertheless, he will always be the answer to a great trivia question. After 1974, Dave May was traded to Atlanta for Hank Aaron.
May retired after the 1978 and died in 2012. He was a fun player to watch as I recall.
