Rodak Remembers: Baseball Quiz #3

XX
What did this rather benign looking player who was nonetheless formidable on the diamond have in common with presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama?

And what is his name?

Hmm.... It looks like Nellie Fox. From checking his Wikipedia page just now, I also saw that he coached for the (new) Washington Senators. Perhaps the similarity between he, Clinton and Obama is that they all held a job in D.C.

Rodak said...

Nellie Fox, without a chaw in his cheek? Pshaw, sir! This fellow certainly played with Fox, though. Hint: Clinton and Obama are both southpaws...

Graham Womack said...

Ah... that would be Billy Pierce (funny, I recently interviewed Billy O'Dell, and Pierce's name came up, so I should've known this without having to get a hint from you and check Baseball-Reference)

Rodak said...

You are correct, sir!

No fair, you did Chicago while I was offline! (LOL)

What's your excuse, MS? BP thugs keeping you offline, maybe?
