The Hoboken trio got their name come from a baseball anecdote: In 1968, New York Met center fielder Richie Ashburn learned how to say “I’ve got it!” in Spanish to avoid collision with Elio Chacón, who was Venezuelan. Instead, he collided with left fielder Frankie Thomas, who asked, “What the hell is a Yellow Tango?”
