Unpossible Autographs-Frank Zupo
The man with the best, bushiest eyebrows in Orioles history played in only 16 games for the Birds over the course of three seasons. While he didn't do much of note at the plate or behind it , he managed to form the only "Z" battery in MLB history, along with George Zuverink, in his catching debut. That's kinda cool. He was also the third youngest player in the Majors over the '57 & '58 seasons.
I couldn't find out how he got his nickname "Noodles" either. So I like to think he got it for having a very weak arm, or liking to eat spaghetti.
