Nope, his mustache didn't have anything to do with the name...

It was because he loved to hunt and fish. Finley gave him the nickname.

At the risk of sounding scrooge-ish, call this half a run (Half a run? What in the name of baseball is that? :-b ). Finley did come up with the nickname, but it wasn't for that reason...

Finley thought it was a catchy nickname, and it would help as a marketing ploy.

Got it! Isn't that a crazy way to pick up a nickname? And it stuck, too...

Anyway, congratulations on winning the June trivia title! ;-D
