Cesar Gutierrez was the feisty Tigers shortstop nicknamed Coco who, on June 21, 1970, went 7-for-7 in a 12-inning win over the Tribe, which brings us to the head-scratching part.

For close to 20 years now, whenever Gutierrez's feat has been recalled among a certain circle of Iffy's friends, all would laugh at what they remembered the headline to be in the paper the next day: "Coco Go Loco."

One problem, though. It might be an urban myth.
