Birthday GIF: Paul O'Neill kicks it to the cutoff man

By Dayn Perry | Baseball Writer

As you may be aware, Monday occasions the 50th birthday of Paul O'Neill, famous purveyor of hits (2,105 of them) and at-bat tantrums (also 2,105 of them). Over at Cut4, they honored Mr. O'Neill by posting video of the hallowed and august "kick it to the cutoff man" play from back in his Cincinnati days. In this space, we have created a birthday GIF (get it?) out of it. Please do regard ...

Regardless of what you think of the "Garo Yepremian decision tree" that led O'Neill to opt for the boot, please do admire the form and commitment to the act.

Hope your birthday kicks ball, Paul O'Neill.
