I remember being mystified by the name "Chico". I was a white kid from the 'burbs and had no idea about Latin culture. Nor that Cardenas had pulled an ice pick on Jim O'Toole late in that '64 season. Cardenas got traded to the Twins for Jim Merritt and his life got a little rough after that. http://reds.enquirer.com/2002/10/27/wwwredb1lede27.html
