A previous post featuring Blackhawks favorite Pat Stapleton got me thinking about his nickname, "Whitey".
I'm guessing this is the most famous "Whitey" of them all, "The Chairman of the Board", Whitey Ford.
It's an often overlooked fact that Whitey Ford was part of a successful US Military time travel experiment. In 1953 Whitey was sent back in time and went 18-6 for the 1933 Yankees. True story.
Whitey Herzog was a baseball "lifer" starting in 1949 as New York Yankees farmhand and ending in the Angels front office in 1994. Along the way he became a manager and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2010.
Whitey Lockman also had a long career in baseball as a player, coach, scout, and front office man.
Whitey scored the tying run preceding Bobby Thomson across the plate as part of the "Shot Heard Round the World".
Yet another baseball "lifer", Whitey Weitermann spent over 40 years as a player and coach.

Any other notable Whiteys you can think of?
