20 October 16

Today's baseball tie honors the birthdays of star players Mickey Mantle (1931-1995), Juan Marichal (1937) and Keith Hernandez (1953). This year's World Series starts next Tuesday, featuring the Cleveland Indians and either the Chicago Cubs (!!!) or the Los Angeles Dodgers. I don't know whether actor Bela Lugosi (1882-1956) and rapper Snoop Dogg (1971) -- also born on this day -- care about baseball, but I will guess that physicist James Chadwick (1891-1974) was decidedly neutral. (Chadwick discovered the neutron.)
