    I will go out on the limb and say that was the only three homer game of Pete's career.

    Vinegar Bend Mizell has to be one of the greatest nicknames of all time. Any ideas on how he got that nickname?

    Mizell was born and reared in Leakesville, Mississippi, but gained his sobriquet playing baseball in nearby Vinegar Bend, Alabama.

    He also was in politics after baseball.
