Today in Comics History, June 8: Happy birthday, Van Lingle Mungo!

Born on this day: Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Giants All-Star pitcher Van Lingle Mungo! Born in 1911, he would be really old today! What am I saying...they considered him old way back then!

from "[Old Timers]" in King Comics #119 (David McKay, March 1946), pencils and inks by Jack Burnley

Happy birthday, Rip Van Lingle Mungo!

We always referred to him by his full name, Van Lingle Mungo

You're right, Walaka - that's the way he's listed on WIkipedia. Thanks for the note, and I've corrected the post!
