"Peanuts" - was Joe Schlabotnik a real person?

He was a baseball player who Charlie Brown idolised: did he actually exist?

Fictional. Although there certainly could have been a minor leaguer by that name somewhere sometime.

Who knew former journeyman infielder Dickie Thon has his own website with book reviews?

Fictional, but everybody still talks about him. I counted 272 hits when I Googled his name just now. :smiley:

My signon for my fantasy baseball league was “shlabotnik.” I thought I was the only one who remembered.

Even a real player couldn’t hold a job in the Green Grass League batting .004.
