J. P. Reed. He had one box of cough drops on Monday, two boxes on Tuesday and 3 boxes on Wednesday. And then after that he lost 3 games in one day. Keep in mind that cough drops were much more narcotic in his day than they are today. (Cont.)

Neat trivia, hehe. I love cough drops. I have kept myself from eating them though, because someone said that it is not good for me to have too much of the menthol or whatever is in them. I like the Hall's kind.
