You ever wonder when your favorite athletes were born?  I have.  I’m guessing you already know.  I know when my favorite athlete was born.  In case you were wondering mine is Nolan Ryan.  He was born January 31st.  Since we are in the month of June, though, I felt starting with the month we are in would be a good place to start.

As I was looking for a list of Athlete birthdays; I came cross an interesting fact.  Find a full, good list is more difficult than you would think.  When I googled “athlete birthdays” I usually found a top 10 or 15 list.  That’s cool.  Except, every list is practically the same.  Boring.  When I googled “famous birthdays,” I found more youtube and “stars” listed than athletes.

Fortunately, for me, I was able to find a site with a pretty good list of people born on each day of the year.  However, there have been a lot of athletes from born over the last 150ish years.  Why should it be relegated to a top 10 or 15?  I decided to start a more full list of when athletes were born.  Now, FANTOM has that fuller list of athlete’s birthdays for your viewing pleasure.

Let’s begin here with a list of athletes born during the first week of June.
