> His creation, the fictional Charles Finley,

FYI, that's the alias of choice for Sam Axe, a freelance vigilante in the TV series "Burn Notice" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_Axe#Sam_Axe_as_Chuck_Finle...)

Chuck Finley also pitched in the MLB for 16 years[1]. The weirdest part of the whole story to me was that he gave his fake ballplayer the name of an actual ballplayer.
