David Steinberg notes:

The 29-Down clue is mentioned in Will Weng's obituary: On one occasion, a puzzle he edited described Nick Etten, a competent but rather obscure first baseman, as a "Yankee Great." To call such a person a "Yankee Great" in New York is a dangerous business and there were letters to Mr. Weng asking how dare he put Mr. Etten in the same dugout with Joe DiMaggio. "Some unsympathetic solvers suggested I was the type of person who could be expected to define Marv Throneberry as a Met Great," he wrote. "Or Marion Davies as a memorable star."
