Kirk Gibson Home Run - 1988 WS Some baseball fans would argue this is the most dramatic moment in MLB history: It's Game #1 of the 1988 World Series. It's the bottom of the ninth inning. The Los Angeles Dodgers trail the favored Oakland A's 4-3. With two out and a runner on first base, an injured Kirk Gibson, hobbled by two bad legs, makes a dramatic pinch-hitting appearance. Vin Scully and Joe Garagiola provide the commentary.

Sad Final Years of Jerry Quarry Jerry Quarry was an extremely popular heavyweight fighter whose best years unfortunately coincided with the heydays of both Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. Quarry was a two-fisted slugger who possessed suprising mobility in the ring. A fine overall athlete, Quarry was a finalist in ABC's Superstars in 1974. His popularity landed him cameo appearances on TV shows such as Adam-12, I Dream of Jeannie, and Batman. However, Quarry's long career in the ring--he had about 200 amateur bouts and 66 pro fights--took a heavy toll. In 1983, six years after his last fight, Quarry and two other boxers volunteered to take neurological exams for a Sports Illustrated feature on the harmful effects of boxing. Although Quarry seemed perfectly healthy and alert, his test results were shockingly bad. By the mid 1990s, pugilistic dementia, commonly known "being punch drunk" had set in. This sad feature on Quarry was shot in 1995 when he was just 50 years old. He was under the care of his brother because he was unable to take care of himself anymore. Quarry was hospitalized in late December 1998 with pneumonia and died of cardiac arrest on January 3, 1999. He was just 53 years old.

Charley Ross Abduction Case - 1874 The first prominent child abduction in American history was the Charley Ross case. On July 1, 1874, four-year-old Charley Ross was playing with his five-year-old brother Walter in the front yard of their home in the affluent Germantown section of Philadelphia. Two men pulled up in a horse-drawn carriage. They offered the two brothers candy and fireworks if they would take a ride into town with them. The naive youngsters agreed. After a short ride, the carriage stopped in front of a store. Walter was given a quarter to buy fireworks. When he came out of the store, the carriage was gone. A sobbing Walter was found by a policeman. Walter explained what had happened. He described one of the men as having "a monkey nose." Not long afterward, ransom demands were mailed to Charley's father, Christian Ross, from various post offices in and around Philadelphia. The notes demanded the enormous sum of $20,000 for the boy's safe return. Christian was heavily in debt following the 1873 stock market crash and could not afford to play the ransom. The Pinkerton Detective Agency circulated thousands of handbills with an artist's drawing of Charley's face which made the case national news. Attempts to meet with the kidnappers on several occasions failed when the abductors never showed up. There were no significant developments in the case until December 1874 when two career criminals were shot while attempting to burglarize a judge's home in Long Island. One intruder, Bill Mosher, died instantly. The other, Joe Douglas, was mortally wounded. Before he died, Douglas confessed that he and Mosher had kidnapped Charley Ross in July. Contradictory statements were given as to whether the boy was still alive. Walter was taken to Long Island to identify the dead twosome. He agreed they were the men who had taken him for the carriage ride in July. Mosher was easily identified because of his deformed "monkey nose." The Ross family resolutely continued to pursue leads for Charley well into the 1930s. Hundreds of would-be Charley Rosses were investigated. None could be proven as legitimate. It is believed the admonition, "Don't take candy from strangers" was inspired by the Charley Ross kidnapping.

Vanishing TV Character - Thorny Thornberry The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet ran for 435 episodes over an amazing 14 seasons on ABC from 1952 to 1966--a record for a non-animated sitcom that still stands today. From 1952 to 1957 Don DeFore played the Nelsons' good-natured next-door neighbor "Thorny" Thornberry in 96 episodes. (Whatever Thorny's real first name was, it was never mentioned). Thorny often exchanged playful barbs with Ozzie Nelson and gave him ill-timed advice. Sometimes he got caught up in whatever amusing complications befell the Nelson patriarch and his family. DeFore was nominated for an Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in 1955 and was generally a popular part of the program. However, the show began to focus on different neighbors in the late 1950s (primarily Joe and Mary Jane Randolph and Doc Williams). Thorny, despite his popularity, just vanished without any explanation. DeFore later had a starring role in the 1960s sitcom Hazel in which he played Hazel's employer George Baxter.

Phantom Tag Call - 1973 World Series It's Game #2 of the 1973 World Series. The game is tied 6-6 in the top of the tenth inning. The New York Mets have a runner (Bud Harrelson) at third base with one out. Felix Millan lofts a fly ball to Oakland's Joe Rudi in left field. Harrelson tries to score on the play. Catcher Ray Fosse catches Rudi's strong throw on one hop and attempts to apply a sweep tag on Harrelson who does not slide. Veteran NL umpire Augie Donatelli assumes an unusual position to make the call--and declares Harrelson out. You decide if the call was right. (The Mets eventually won the game 10-7 in 12 innings.)

Town Changes Its Name to Joe Montana Joe Montana, who had quarterbacked the San Francisco 49ers to four Super Bowl titles, was acquired by the Kansas City Chiefs in 1993. A happy Kansas City radio announcer dreamed up a unique publicity stunt to celebrate. He persuaded the small town of Ismay, MT to change its name for the duration of the 1993 NFL season to Joe, Montana. The 22 residents of Ismay voted unanimously in favor of the oddball idea. As a reward, they were all treated to a trip to see the a Chiefs play a home game versus the Cincinnati Bengals.
