On this day in 1903, Cincinnati signed leftfielder "Peekskill Pete" Cregan. According to Wikipedia, Peekskill is a small town in New York, and Cregan was from nearby Kingston, NY. I suspect that Cregan spent some amount of time in Peekskill, but I can't confirm this hypothesis. Cregan did play for both Kingston and Schenectady in the New York State League.

On this day in 2008, former Red Jose Arredondo made his major league debut with the Angels. As of now, he's a free agent, and while I know that Arredondo struggled at AAA last season, I am surprised that another team hasn't kicked the tires on him.

Also on this day in 2008, Paul Janish made his big league debut with the Reds.
