You guys know Sean Berry, right? Not to be confused with the nine other Sean Berryâ€™s that come up when you do a simple Google search, this guy played professional baseball and is the current Minor League hitting coordinator for the San Diego Padres.
Traded by the Kansas City Royals with Archie Corbin to the MontrĂ©al Expos for Chris Hanley and Bill Sampen (players you probably forgot about and thought were your accountants) on August 29th of 1992, Sean Berry put up some ok numbers in MontrĂ©al.
Berry really made a name for himself in Houston where he was traded on December 20th, 1995 for Raul Chavez and Dave Veres (people you also forgot about and might be part of the same accounting firm as Sampen and Hanley). Seany B (as would be his super-dope-def moniker if he was a rapper) was a member of the Killer Bâ€™s along with Jeff Bagwell, Craig Biggio and Derek Bell. The Killer Bâ€™s were not a strain of hyperactive wasps that messed with Mulder and Scully in the first X-Files movie but thus named as such because the last name of each of the aforementioned players starts with the letter B.
Berry played for the Expos from 1992-1995 and celebrates his 48th year of being here, like in the world, today. Happy birthday, Sean Berry!
