Adam’s Fun Facts: White Castle, Krystal’s, Left Handed Catchers & More!

by Adam Alexander
What is the only state to have both a Krystal and a White Castle? Courtney Love’s grandfather may be this very famous actor! What was the last year the MLB had a left handed catcher? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:
1. There are only two states that have both “small square burger” fast food chains, White Castle and Krystal: Kentucky and Tennessee. Other than that, White Castle is mostly in the north and Krystal is in the south. (Laughing Squid)

2. “Billboard” started in 1894 as a magazine about ACTUAL billboard advertising. It started focusing more on music in the 1930s. (Wikipedia)

3. Marlon Brando had 16 children and it’s believed he’s the father of a 17th, a woman named Linda Carroll. Linda went on to have a daughter named (wait for it) Courtney Love!  So it’s possible Brando was Courtney Love’s grandfather. (Wikipedia)

4. 40% of cats are left-handed and another 10% are ambidextrous. (ABC News)

5. There hasn’t been a left-handed catcher in a Major League Baseball game since 1989. The main reason is because right-handed batters would be in the way if a left-handed catcher had to try to throw out someone trying to steal a base. (Wikipedia)
