The final Sox / S.I. cover for the month:

March 19, 1979 - Sox shortstop prospect Harry Chappas appears on the cover of Sports Illustrated with the caption, "The Littlest Rookie. Shortstop Harry Chappas." Chappas is all of 5 feet, 3 inches tall. His career was as brief as his height. In three years he appeared in 72 games with 184 at bats, one home run, two stolen bases and fifteen walks.

I've got him by two inches. Pretty cool picture.

He hit about .280 in his September call up in '78 but also made about nine errors. I wonder what he's doing now.
