Happy Birthday DA !!!

Richard Anthony Allen was born on March 8th, 1942 in Wampum, Pennsylvania. He was one of Era Allen's five boys. Each of them went on to become All-State Basketball players at Wampum High School. In 1960 Dick Allen led the team to the State Championship. Many people that saw him play at the time say he could of been an NBA basketball star if he did not decide to play baseball.

He may never make it into the Baseball Hall of Fame, but he will always be my favorite player.

Happy Birthday Big Fella !!!!!
