Snap Into This Tidbit

Wow, I never knew Randy Macho Man Savage, who died today in a car crash, was a minor league ballplayer. And Jimmy Piersall managed him in '73 when he was on the Orangeburg Cardinals (and was known as Randy Poffo).

Oh, and click here if you're a crazy religious person.

I remember hearing Keith Hernandez talk during a Mets game how he was teammates with Macho Man in the Cardinals' system. Said he was a decent prospect as a catcher, but injuries took a toll on him and he switched to wrestling...
Now why would a wrestler not want to use the name Poffo?
"but injuries took a toll on him and he switched to wrestling"

He chose the right kind of wrestling then.

Allan, great point!
