Switched at Birth?

My quest today has led me to The Baseball Card Blog where our host makes a case that five-toed kicker Tony Dempsey and 1988 World Series star Kirk Gibson were actually the same person.

His real name is Alistair Bippleby, he’s from Highgate (a North London suburb), he came to study in the states to meet American girls in the mid-1970s, and then he never left. He tried to get a job as a physicist but found that the only job he could get with his unorthodox fu manchu mustache was that of a part-time baseball player, part-time American football place-kicker.
I gotta admit, the guy makes a pretty solid case and also makes me wonder if it might not be time for a full-on fu manchu come-back!
