Dizzy Trout
The Mount Carmel Item (Mount Carmel, PA) | August 24, 1944 | Page Six
Born Paul Howard Trout, Dizzy and Hal Newhouser were an absolutely lethal lefty-righty back-to-back pitching duo. How he became known as Dizzy, might surprise you:

Trout began his baseball career in Terre Haute, Indiana, in 1935. A man with a booming voice an and irreverent manner, Paul Trout was nicknamed Dizzy by a local newspaper.

"I figured that by acting a little screwy I could draw extra customers for the club, furnish copy for the newspapers, and make more money for myself," Trout explained years later.

By 1938 he had worked his way up to spring training with Detroit . He arrived on his motorcycle and circled the field a few times before dismounting and report to manager Mickey Cochrane . "That's very nice, Dizzy," Cochrane said. "Now you can keep on going to Toledo."

Source: Baseball: The Biographical Encyclopedia (Matthew Silverman. Total Sports Publishing. May 2000. Page 1,145.)

Did you know that Steve Trout , a Major League pitcher himself and Dizzy's son, once shared the following anecdote about his father, "Dad got Ted Williams to strike out once with two on and two out, giving him the win, then asked Mr. Williams to sign the ball he struck him out with. Ted glared at him, but signed it anyway and tossed it back to him. As fate would have it, they met up again that season. Dad was pitching again, this time in Fenway, and wouldn't you know it, the circumstances were almost identical. Williams came up again, two outs, two on, only that time he hit a TREMENDOUS home run deep into the seats in right field. As Williams trotted around the bases, he looked over his shoulder at my dad and said, 'I'll sign that son-of-a-bitch too, if you can find it.'"
