That story made me think of the time we were on the Winston Cup Media Tour — probably 15 or 20 years ago — and I asked Labbe why they call him Slugger. He said that when he was a baby or toddler — I forget which — he was wearing a t-shirt with "Little Slugger" on it. They've called him Slugger ever since.
It's a shame that Slugger didn't play baseball; the nickname would have fit perfectly. On the other hand, it's fit him most of his life.
