Stubby was born and raised in Queens, NY. His parents named him Stubby after he was born with abnormally short toes. In fact, Stubby has the smallest feet of any pitcher in the league, wearing a size 6 shoe despite his 6'3 frame.

Stubby is the first contender to move the Final Four. He staged a furious comeback after Howard Stern promoted his campaign on his Sirius Radio show. Howard has since pulled back his support after learning the true reason for Stubby's name.
