4. Minnie Minoso

For some strange reason I was thinking of Orestes "Minnie" Minoso this morning.  He played baseball in the major leagues in five different decades ('40s thru 80's) and is one of only two players to have done that.

I'm old enough to remember him with the Indians and White Sox in the early-to-mid '50s.  Anyway, "Orestes" seemed like an interesting name to try in a limerick, so here's what I composed:

There once was a man named Orestes
Who adorned his small torso in Guess T's.
And though he wore brogans
The shirts' girlish slogans
Made folks ask "Does 'restes have testes?"
