NotoriousW.O.P: Taxee: What is this "doubleheader" that some of you are speaking of?

I've seen at least one in the past 10 years at PNC Park. Cubs/Pirates. Both were dreadful. That's probably why it was a doubleheader. Rob Mackowiak pinch-hit a grand slam to win the first game, and homered to tie the second (Craig Wilson homered it to win it). It was the same day Mackowiak's son was born. Rob was still wearing the hospital bracelet at the game.


I was there that day. It was fantastic.

hokiethug1992: 1977-1983 was a great time to be a boy living on the outskirts of Baltimore, listening to them on the radio every night, with a golden retriever at his side.

sigh.


Cincinnati still has Marty Breneman and we want to keep it that way

AliceBToklasLives: Back when I played video games, of course I played Earl Weaver Baseball

[2.bp.blogspot.com image 640x400]

/Two favorite Earl Weaver moments: (1) tearing up the rulebook when he didn't care for the ump's call (we don't need this shiat); (2) Hugging an umpire when he was inducted into the Hall of Fame


the rulebook thing was actually even funnier.  His pitching coach was Ray Miller, and Miller wanted to manage someday, so he kept a rulebook with him, and whenever something rules related came up , he would make notes on it in that book - which means with Earl, a LOT of stuff happened relating to the rules, so that rulebook was jammed with notes. Sooo....one day Earl (surprise) gets in an argument, stomps back into the dugout and <i>grabs Miller's rulebook</I>, notes and all!  Sad to say, Miller lost all of his notes that day...

There seems to be a great bit of dust associated with that link..

Grew up in NOVA during the days of Earl and still an Orioles fan (long suffering). Loved his passion for the game and those were some great times to be an O's fan. My cousin and I recently spent some time rattling off our favorite O's during EW's time..... Rick was actually the one who called me today with the sad news....

Sadly, my grandmother (life long Tigers fan) is probably giving Earl and earful right about now....

I was never an Orioles' fan, but as a fan of American League baseball I admire of Weaver's baseball philosophy: "pitching, defense, and the three-run homer."

I was there with a bunch of Cubs fans, making it even more awesome for me. I worked across the street from the stadium, and walked over in time for the third or fourth inning of the first game.
