I don't know what that stands for, but ask Jim Brosnan about Jim Maloney's nickname (at least I think it was Maloney).

Yeah, I know Maloney's nickname. I think it rhymes with Mitts.

OC stood for "Occasional Cocktail," which Merritt had a great affinity for.

Mitts, as in Heather. ;)

OC...I like that one. Sounds like one my grandfather would come up with. That's his type of humor. He and his friends liked to call Fridays "POETS Night," which stood for "P(rhymes with kiss) On Everything, Tomorrow's Saturday."

Marty always talked about Motorboat Jones in the minors...I don't even think he ever made it up.
