now the o-pee-chee back:
chip spent all of 1977 in the minor leagues, pitching for the expos' aa and aaa affiliates in quebec and colorado. one of his teammates in denver during the '77 season was tom walker. lang eventually married walker's sister, and so is an uncle of pittsburgh's second baseman, neil walker. lang never did return to the major leagues, as he finished his career in the pirates' organization in 1979.
and, today just happens to be his 60th birthday. happy birthday chip!
