Washington Times, March 27, 1913:
It’s “Bunny” Leibold, hereafter.
The littlest of the little ones in baseball has prayed for a change, and it has been granted him by the Naps. He doesn’t like the nickname “Little Nemo,” and he begged his fellow-players to drop it. “Call me anything but Nemo,” was his plea.
“I don’t care if you call me ‘Midget,’ or ‘Runt,’ or ‘Bunny,’ or anything else, but that ‘Nemo’ gets my got.” And the “Bunny cognomen suited the assemblage, so he Bunny Leibold from now on in camp.
He’d be disappointed to learn that 100 years later, he’s still Nemo.
