    Oddly enough,he was supposedly known on occasion to sign his name as Roger and also not complain if referred to as Roger(especially if by someone loaning him money to bet on the horses)!

    His mother's name was Mary Dallas Rogers Hornsby.

    From the BaseballPage.co.:

    "Born in Winters, Texas on April 27, 1896, Rogers Hornsby got his somewhat unusual first name from his mother Mary, whose maiden name was Rogers."

    Below: from ESPN.com.

    "Hornsby was born April 27, 1896, in Winters, Texas, and was named for his mother, Mary Rogers Hornsby."

    Also this from another site:

    "Ed Hornsby married Mary Dallas Rogers, from nearby Rogers Hill, in 1882."
    ". . . the Ruth, the whole Ruth and nothing but the Ruth . . ."
