Bobble Head

Continuing on from my earlier post today re "Robert Solow", note this excerpt:
  • Paul Anthony Samuelson (May 15, 1915 – December 13, 2009)
  • Robert Merton Solow (born August 23, 1924) 
  • Vernon Lomax Smith (born January 1, 1927)
  • Thomas Crombie Schelling (April 14, 1921 – December 13, 2016) 
This speaks volumes... worthy of a separate post!!
First of all, let's deal with the "December 13" date of death of Samuelson and Schelling.  They are both additions to the "Notable Day" pattern-cluster, as in notable to the inner twin world and I.  On December 13, 2000 I was involved in a car crash -- an event that enabled me to see my inner twin Tou and the inner twin world for the first time even though in hindsight it's obvious that they have been at work in our lives and world for quite some time, leaving us wholly unaware... at least that is until now and as they reveal themselves.

As well, their birthdays generate a " __, April14, May 15/ Day, Month Sequence" pattern-cluster .  And so normally I would bridge the gap using the "formula", butt as we know (those of us following the inner twin worlds communication), we need to be open to any one of the many "curve balls" they throw our way.  So deviating just a bit from the formula, one person caught my eye:
Really... what with TODAY'S prolific "Leo" pattern-cluster... one can't simply ignore.   Note from
his wiki page:
  • Leon Day (October 30, 1916 – March 13, 1995)
That he was born in October-- an addition to the ever growing "October" pattern-cluster in the last couple of days posts, is a heads up.  Note the following info regarding those mentioned on his wiki page:
  • Leroy Robert "SatchelPaige (July 7, 1906 – June 8, 1982) 
  • Herbert Allen "Rap" Dixon (September 15, 1902 – July 20, 1942) 
  • Theodore "Double Duty" Radcliffe (July 7, 1902 – August 11, 2005)
  • Benjamin Harrison Taylor (July 1, 1888 – January 24, 1953)
  • Maxwell Cornelius Manning (November 18, 1918 - June 23, 2003)
  • Raymond Emmitt Dandridge (August 31, 1913 – February 12, 1994)
  • Willie Wells (August 10, 1906[1] – January 22, 1989) Nickname: the Devil     
  • Richard William "Dick" Seay (November 30, 1904 – April 6, 1981)     
  • George "Mule" Suttles (March 31, 1901 – July 9, 1966)
  • George Herman "BabeRuth (February 6, 1895 – August 16, 1948)
  • Thomas Lee “Pee Wee” Butts (August 27, 1919 – December 30, 1972) 
  • Kurt Lidell Schmoke (born December 1, 1949 
  • William Donald Schaefer (November 2, 1921 – April 18, 2011)
Make of it what you will... including walking in the footsteps of the MacGregor's if that's your particular MO too, butt it's not something that I would recommend.

As you can see, I singled out Willie Wells.  It's his name "Wells" as in "water welling up"... and initials "WW" (double you/double ewe) for one, and the fact that he was born on the 222nd day of the year and died on the 22nd day.... AND his nickname "the Devil".  Note form his wiki page:  
Wells was also notable as being the first player to use a batting helmet, after being hit and getting a concussion while playing with the Newark Eagles. (His first helmet was a construction helmet.)
So he was also wise... butt not until he was hit in the head!!  You may recall the "Big Head" (from the name Koppel) that cropped up recently.  I consider this a lead.  The "batting helmet" wiki page contains quite a large number of notable persons, butt this Excerpt stands out:
 The new helmet did not catch on because the players said it made them look like bobbleheads. Some players, including Mets third baseman David Wright, did decide to use the helmet while batting
Note from Wright's wiki page:
David Allen Wright (born December 20, 1982)   
It may not seem like much, butt taking into consideration the birthday of my two sisters, we now have a "December 14, __, 18, 20/Even Day, Date Sequence" pattern-cluster.   And another excerpt that stands out:
The first known case of a manager issuing head protectors to his players on a large scale was Philadelphia Phillies' manager Pat Moran who gave cork-cushioned hats to his players in 1921.[2]
 Patrick Joseph Moran (February 7, 1876 – March 7, 1924)
