Heinie Beckendorf, born this day in 1884, Peek-A-Boo Veach, born this day in 1862.

 

I love funny player names, be it Dick Pole, "Pebbly Jack" Glasscock, Johnny Wockenfuss or even Diego Segui - these men deserve a place of honor.

 

Who are your favorites?

On a lighter not my friend's last name is Heinie and the father was Seymour Heinie.

 

I was told, when small, he was the inventor of the mini-skirt. (I believed it for some time)
