Jackie Wilson  Thats Why Jackie Wilson first started his career in music in his native Detroit. He joined Billy Ward & the Dominoes in 1953, replacing Clyde McPhatter. After losing McPhatter, the group's only major recording success with Wilson came in June of 1956 with the single "St. Therese of The Roses" that reached number 13 on the Pop charts. His solo career began with 1957's "Reet Petite," written by the then-unknown Berry Gordy, Jr. He had his first top 40 hit in 1958 with "To Be Loved." At the end of that year he had his first big success with "Lonely Teardrops" that went to #7 on the charts. The song, also written by Gordy, became his signature tune. That same year saw Wilson release his first LP titled She's So Fine. Wilson's brand of soul and R&B helped him cross over to the mainstream, having several pop hits. His dynamic stage performances earned him the nickname "Mr. Excitement." In another of his performances on Ed Sullivan's show, he sang "Lonely Teardrops" which was considered one of the show's classics. In the 1960s, Wilson continued to record singles, many of them operatic, such as "Danny Boy" or "Night," others were up-tempo and exciting, such as "Baby Workout" in 1963. His career began to suffer in the mid-60s, though he managed a brief revival by collaborating with Carl Davis, a legendary Chicago producer. This resulted in two hits, "Whispers (Gettin' Louder)" and "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher". The revival was short-lived, though, and Wilson rarely charted in the 1970s. He suffered a massive heart attack while playing a Dick Clark show at the Latin Casino in Cherry Hill, New Jersey on September 29, 1975, falling head-first to the stage; he was singing "Lonely Teardrops". The blow to his head left him comatose. For the next eight years and four months he was in a vegetative state until his death at age 49.

Fred Snodgrass 1912 World Series Goat This is a photo of the first in a long line of World Series 'goats'--ballplayers who made critical blunders in the spotlight of the Fall Classic. In 1912, Fred Snodgrass of the New York Giants dropped Clyde Engel's routine fly ball in the bottom of the 10th inning of the deciding game of the World Series. The muff led to the Boston Red Sox turning a one-run deficit into a stunning 3-2 win. Sports writers called it the '$30,000 muff' because that was the difference between the winners' share of the 1912 World Series receipts and the losers' share. Despite an enormously successful real estate career in California after he retired from baseball, Snodgrass could never escape his infamous error. On April 5, 1974, the headline of Snodgrass' obituary in the New York Times read, 'Snodgrass, 86, Dead. Ballplayer Muffed 1912 Fly.'

David Clyde - Pitching Bust David Clyde was perhaps the biggest disappointment in baseball history--which is saying quite a bit! The left-handed pitcher played five MLB seasons with the Texas Rangers (19731975) and Cleveland Indians (19781979). He is noted for his once promising baseball career which ended at age 26 because of arm and shoulder injuries. Hyped as the next Sandy Koufax, Clyde had a stellar amateur career at Westchester High School in Houston, TX where he compiled a minuscule 0.18 ERA in 148 innings. He was drafted by the Texas Rangers with the first overall pick in the 1973 MLB draft. As a way to boost poor attendance in Texas, Clyde was to pitch his first two professional games with the Rangers before moving down to the minor leagues for experience. He made his major league debut at age 18 on June 27, 1973 versus the Minnesota Twins--just 20 days after pitching his last high school game. Before a sellout crowd, Clyde walked the first two Twins he faced and then struck out the next three. He pitched five innings, allowed one hit, and got credit for the Rangers' 4-3 win. The strong attendance caused Rangers' owner Bob Short to reconsider his plans for Clyde. He decided to keep Clyde on the Rangers' roster as a much-needed gate attraction. In 1973 Clyde compiled a poor 5.01 earned run average in 18 starts. Worse, Clyde received very little mentorship. He fell into a clique of Ranger players who were known for their undisciplined behavior away from the diamond. Journalists rightly criticized the Rangers for promoting Clyde too soon. After an uneventful 1974 campaign, he developed shoulder trouble and was sent down to the minor leagues in 1975, where Clyde pitched three seasons. He was traded to the Cleveland Indians in 1978, and played two seasons before being demoted. Clyde attempted to make a comeback with the Houston Astros in 1981 but was unsuccessful. He fell a few innings short of qualifying for a MLB pension.
