The story goes that a 75-year-old bank robber told federal judge Kennesaw Mountain Landis that he was too old and sick to serve a 15-year sentence.

"I ain't got that much time left," the elderly robber whined.

The tough, tobacco-chewing judge replied: "Well, just do the best you can."

Landis later became Major League Baseball's first commissioner on Jan. 12, 1921
