Baseball-Reference keeps track of the birthdays of every active MLB player as well as the majority of historical ballplayers on our site. You can access today's birthdays by clicking on the Happy Birthday/Born On This Day link on Baseball-Reference's front page. You could already sort birthdays by birth year, years played in MLB, All-Star Game selections and other basic statistics. But now, we've added our Wins Above Replacement metric as an additional stat to sort by.
Since today's August 24th, let's give a spotlight to the top 10 players born on this day, ranked by WAR:
|1||Cal Ripken Jr. HOF||1960||21||1981||2001||95.9||BAL|
|2||Harry Hooper HOF||1887||17||1909||1925||53.5||BOS,CHW|
