Names I Can’t Believe Aren’t Famous – Dick Tidrow

6 Feb

1984 Topps - Dick Tidrow

This one could have fallen into the Manly, Magical Mustaches category as well, but a name like Dick Tidrow belongs here.  It’s the kind of name you’d expect for someone who also inherited the nickname “Dirt.”  This was, according to Wikipedia, because he had a propensity for getting his uniform dirty even before games.

Tidrow, after a successful playing career including two World Series championships with the Yankees, has had a successful career with the San Francisco Giants as their Vice-President, Player Personnel. He still has his mustache.
