the Mighty Casey
"Say Hey" Willie Mays
Ty Cobb
Joe DiMaggio
Joe Jackson - Jackson is a bit more vague but he does fit the list.


Put me in coach! I know the answer

Well, I spent some time in the Mudville Nine, watchin' it from the bench;
You know I took some lumps when the Mighty Casey struck out.
So Say Hey Willie, tell Ty Cobb and Joe DiMaggio;
Don't say "it ain't so", you know the time is now."

I know it was a stretch...(and a joke... ;-) )...I was looking up something else...and just happened to put the two together... :-)

Wow, that's a pretty astonishing find. Is that just an amazing coincidence, or should this be posted in the conspiracy theory thread? 8-o

Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

Well - it may be too tenuous a link. I'll give a hint or two and if nobody gets it I'll figure something else out.

But here's your first hint. There are two things that you people know that I am passionate about - politics and baseball. (FYI: Also blondes and chess) They fit together in this trivia question.
