The Sunday Funnies

Pete Browning was the original Louisville Slugger -- a hard-hitting outfielder for the Louisville Colonels of the long-defunct American Association of the 1800s, he is credited with seeking out a local woodworker named John Hillerich to make his bats, leading to the creation of the famous bat company.

Browning was also notoriously illiterate and stupid, although the real issue was likely his deafness.
