40 years ago a name like "Salem Five" would have been a group of political prisoners, not a bank, and with Pedroia's juvenile criminal look he would have fit right in.
I don't know why Massachusetts has so many banks with "Five Cents" in their name, but it's fairly common there and pretty much nonexistent in other states. Maybe some special regulations, or something. Anyone know the history there?
1. You must have Pedroia confused with his brother.
The one that baffles me that I see when I go to Florida is the "Fifth Third Bank." I'm sure it makes perfect sense I just don't know why.
Nothing mysterious. Fifth Third was a combination of the Fifth National Bank and the Third National Bank. It's the biggest banking company in the Midwest (it happens to be mine).
