The JOBC Contest

On this day in 1967, the Cubs purchased the contract of a little used infielder from the Chicago White Sox. He played briefly for the Cubs, but became better known as their notorious manager a few decades later.

What was his name?

The first person that e-mails me the correct answer at will win a commemorative Greg Maddux 3000th strikeout scorecard, an autographed copy of the excellent baseball novel "The Pitch" (by Hank Owens), plus a t-shirt from the Just One Bad Century catalog.

UPDATE: Congratulations to Joe Kane. He was the winner in this week's JOBC Contest. He knew that Lee Elia was the answer and was the first one to e-mail me at Of course, we all remember this fine Lee Elia moment from his managing days
