10 out of 12. Not too disappointed but I shouldn't have missed 11. Tbf he had a big head so he was ignoring his parents, siblings, coach, and teammates so he wasn't really being nice ig
But MeTV loves some Tinker, Evers, and Chance! They use that reference all the time!

Don Drysdale was on an episode of Leave it to Beaver years earlier. I didn't recognize him here with his 70's haircut so I got that question wrong.
It aired in '62, the season he won 25 games (25-9, 2.83 ERA) and the Cy Young Award.
"Long Distance Call" (aired on June 16, 1962)
Trivia: when he was a student at Van Nuys High School, one of his classmates was Robert Redford.
Died on July 3, 1993 (30 years ago Monday [2022]), at only 56 from a heart attack in Montreal, hours before his broadcast of a game. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0630262 "Long Distance Call" (decades before cell phones obliterated L-D tel charges, and AT&T phone booths)
He made appearances on these classic tv series: in chronological order: The Rifleman, Leave It To Beaver, Leave It To Beaver, The Donna Reed Show, The Flying Nun, The Brady Bunch, and Lucas Tanner.
I typoed the wrong year: 2023, 30 years after his shocking death.

11/12, missed the last one, caught me looking. Drysdale had that season in 1968 where I think he threw 58 consecutive scoreless innings. He also appeared on Leave It To Beaver.

Drysdale was also on the Rifleman episode with the Skull Gang. He was the bad guy in the overalls that took the Rifle from Chuck Connors. I think got him that gig.

On #2, wasn't "Tinker to Evers to Chance" a TRIPLE play?
(And of course they were outdone by "Haldeman to Ehrlichman to Dean".)
Rick CaptainDunsel 8 months ago
No, shortstop -> second -> first

early 1900's Chicago Cubs.

Which could STILL be TRIPLE PLAY though too. Now I'm wondering if they ever had one.

Btw...12 out of 12. Scoop of chocolate, scoop of vanilla...don't waste my time. (Check the screenname!)

This episode did nothing to interest me in baseball. Same is true for the Beverly Hillbillies episode where Dodgers coach Leo Durocher tries to sign up Jethro as a pitcher.
Bapa1 daDoctah 8 months ago
Durocher also appeared in The Munsters and Mr. Ed.

Whether or not these episodes were interesting to the viewing public, they were highly interesting to Barry Williams, Christopher Knight, and Mike Lookinland who all reveled in the chance to spend time with star athletes.
