Eddie Popowski

On this date in 2001, Eddie Popowski passed away at age 88.

"Pop (in his 80's) would drive Ted Williams around in a golf cart in spring training and one day a large crowd descended on Ted for autographs. Pop just sat in the cart with his arms folded watching. A guy came over to him and said 'Aren't you Eddie Popowski?' Well my dad got all pumped up and he said 'Why yes I am.' The guy said 'I thought you were dead, but you look good.'" - daughter Carole Garbowski

Any relation to Soda from the Mike Tyson's Punch-Out NES game?
