Washington Senators: Norm McRae and Denny Riddleberger

Okay, so I know Denny Riddleberger came out of Clifton Forge, Virginia, which makes for a little kinship, as I’m also a Virginia native.  I’m a little puzzled about the fact that he only got three seasons in the majors, as he appears to have been quite competent.

Norm I’m not quite as familiar with. I do know he died of cancer in 2003. I know that he was a subpar pitcher who never actually played with the Senators. What I’m wondering is if he was related to Hal and Brian McRae. He sure resembles them, but they don’t have any connections that I can find. Does anyone know?
