Of all the HC trivia that I have learned over a half century, this was the first time I read of a possible connection between HC and “Leo the Lip”. He would have been in the HC Class of 1927. Too bad he did not attend....Certainly would have provide his classmates a memorable character, especially at reunions.

I was unaware of this and many years ago I read a good biography on Leo. Everyone remembers him as the colorful and successful manager and the slick fielding shortstop for the Gashouse Gang, but he started his playing career on the Babe Ruth Yankees in late 1920's
