Rafael Furcal: Have You Been Drinking?
An interesting tidbit of information regarding former Atlanta Brave Rafael Furcal: When Furcal was coming up through the Braves minor league system, his birth date kept showing up differently several times. The difference was always covered by the span of four years. Finally, it took a brush with the law to straighten his age ambiguity out. When Furcal was arrested for suspicion of DUI and was being charged with underage drinking, he quickly admitted his "real" age was 22. Now that was a close call at the plate Rafael! It sure is strange how the pressure of the law can assist a man in becoming an honest individual!
