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.

Occasional Wife - Failed Sitcom For the 1966-67 season NBC introduced a new sitcom titled Occasional Wife. Here was the premise of the show: Peter Christopher (played by Michael Callan), an eager employee of a baby food company, is not allowed to progress up the corporate ladder unless he has a wife. He solves his problem by having a female friend, Greta Patterson (played by Patricia Harty)--who lives two floors up in the same apartment building--pose as his wife whenever necessary to fool his boss. Many humorous sequences occurred on the fire escape where a nosy neighbor--known only as Man-in-the-Middle (played by Bryan O'Byrne)--observed the deceitful goings-on. Occasional Wife started out well in the ratings but had slid into 64th place by the end of its only season. It was axed after 24 episodes. In real life Callan and Harty fell in love while making the show and were married during its short run. They eventually divorced, however. The narrator heard in the opening sequence should be recognizable to baseball fans: It's longtime Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully!

Herb Washington Pickoff - 1974 WS In 1974 Oakland Athletics' owner Charlie Finley signed 22-year-old Herb Washington to an MBL contract. Washington's baseball experience was minimal, but he did hold the indoor world record in the 50-yard dash. Throughout the 1974 season, Washington never once batted or played a defensive position. His sole task was to pinch-run. He stole 29 bases in 45 attempts--which is not really a good success rate for a fast MLB baserunner. In Game #2 of the 1974 World Series, Washington was brought in to pinch-run for Joe Rudi in the top of the ninth inning with one out and the A's trailing the L.A. Dodgers 3-2. To the delight of baseball traditionalists who viewed Washington as an unqualified interloper, Mike Marshall decisively picked off Washington in front of a huge NBC television audience. Curt Gowdy and Vin Scully call the play. Washington's out effectively squelched an A's rally. (They had scored twice in the top of the ninth to make the game close.) The Dodgers won the game 3-2. Washington was cut by the A's in May 1975 and never played baseball again.

Death of Don Drysdale Announced Hall of Fame pitcher Don Drysdale--who became an excellent broadcaster in his post-baseball-playing days--died suddenly on July 3, 1993. As part of the Los Angeles Dodgers' broadcast team, Drysdale's colleagues became alarmed when he was uncharacteristically absent for the team's game in Montreal that night. Drysdale was found dead in his hotel room. He was a few weeks shy of his 57th birthday. A coroner estimated he had been dead for about 18 hours. Dodger broadcaster Vin Scully knew about Drysdale's death but was told not to mention it on the air until Drysdale's wife had been informed. Here's how Vin Scully calmly informed the viewers back in LA about the sad situation. In contrast Scully's announcement is followed by Chicago White Sox broadcaster Ken Harrelson's emotional announcement that same night.

It Takes Two - Forgotten Game Show NBC came up with a new idea for a daytime game show in 1969 called It Takes Two. Three teams of celebrity couples participated. Each team member had to provide an independent numerical answer to a question asked by host...Vin Scully! (Scully is the greatest baseball announcer of all time; this point is not debatable.) Each team's two answers would be condensed to an average. A contestant, often located in an NBC studio in another city, would then guess which couple came closest to the true answer. If he/she were successful, a prize or cash would be awarded. It Takes Two debuted on March 31, 1969 and ran until July 31, 1970. Its airtime was supposed to be weekdays at 10 a.m. across the country, but many NBC affiliates shuffled it around on their schedules in favor of local programming. Here's a ten-minute clip from a 1970 episode. It Takes Two was briefly revived in 1997 on The Family Channel and was hosted by Dick Clark.
