As we drill our droolers, we might recall that it was on this date in 1942 that Chicago Cubs shortstop Lennie Merullo’s eldest son got his nickname.  Informed during a game that day by the club’s owner, Philip Wrigley, that Merullo’s wife had gone into labor with their first child, the shortstop famously made four errors in a single inning.  The Chicago newspapers suggested his newborn baby should be called “Boots” in honor of the occasion… and so he was.
