Baseball Glove Designer on WML There's nothing too special about this clip--just an ordinary challenger on a 1961 episode of What's My Line. This fellow designed baseball gloves for the Rawlings sporting goods company.

Buddy Holly Plane Crash This is a photo montage of the plane wreck that killed singers Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. Richardson (a.k.a. The Big Bopper) early on February 3, 1959. Pilot Roger Peterson also was killed. The three musicians had performed at the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, IA the night before and were headed to Fargo, ND, the closest airport to their next stop on their tour--Moorhead, MN. They decided to leave ahead of the rest of their group because of their dislike of the cold touring bus and to get their laundry done. The ages of the deceased foursome make this tragedy truly sad: Holly was 22, Richardson was 28, Valens was 17, Peterson was 21. Investigators attributed the crash to pilot error (specifically inexperience with the Bonanza aircraft's altitude gauge) combined with bad winter weather. The crash was neither seen nor heard by anyone on the ground. Investigators calculated it occurred about four minutes after takeoff from Mason City's small airport. The charter plane's owner became concerned when Peterson did not report his flight plan after takeoff which he said he would do. The wreckage of the plane was found in a farmer's corn field about nine hours after the crash. All three singers had been thrown from the plane while Peterson's body was trapped in the twisted metal. In a strange and morbid twist, nearly half a century later in 2007 Richardson's body was exhumed to satisfy the curiosity of his son (who hadn't been born at the time of the crash). He had heard wild rumors that his father may have actually survived the crash and had been shot to death! The well preserved corpse of Richardson--with its perfectly cropped flat-top hairstyle--showed that death was instaneous due to countless fractures consistent with an airplane crash victim. Richardson's son spent several minutes "visiting" his father whom he had never known.

ESPN Reveals 1973 King-Riggs Match was Fixed Confirming many people's suspicions that have lingered for 40 years, an expose on ESPN.com this week showed strong evidence that Bobby Riggs deliberately lost his famous Battle of the Sexes tennis match to Billie Jean King as a way to erase his gambling debts with organized crime. The 55-year-old Riggs had throttled Margaret Court, the world's top female tennis player, in a televised match on Mother's Day 1973 6-2, 6-1. Four months later King, the defending Wimbledon champion, beat Riggs in surprisingly easy fashion 6-4, 6-3, 6-3 before a big TV audience and more than 30,000 fans at the Houston Astrodome--despite being a 5-2 underdog at Las Vegas sports books. When one views the Riggs-King match with a critical eye, Riggs played passively and listlessly--not remotely the same way he played against Court in May. Riggs' shots were soft and usually placed directly at King. Riggs, the 1939 men's Wimbledon champion, whose serve was impeccably accurate, also double-faulted at four critical points in the match--including set point in the first set. Several all-time male tennis legends, including Don Budge who achieved the Grand Slam in 1938, expressed doubts about the honesty of the match, but their doubts were dismissed as wounded male pride at the time. According to the ESPN story, Riggs was anywhere from $100,000 to $500,000 in debt to the mob. A witness, now 79, who was close to the mob, told ESPN he had overheard the discussions regarding the fix. Riggs came up with a two-part plan: In exchange for having his gambling debts expunged, Riggs would goad Court into a TV match with sexist comments knowing full well he could beat her soundly. He would then purposely lose to King as a way for the mob to make a killing in wagers on King at long odds. Riggs died in 1995 at age 77. King was among the last people to speak to him.

Short Life of Patrick Kennedy For two days in August 1963, the attention and concern of many Americans was focused on the newborn son of president John F. Kennedy, Patrick. Patrick Bouvier Kennedy was born by emergency caesarean section five-and-a-half weeks early at the Otis Air Force Base Hospital in Bourne, Massachusetts. His birth weight of 4 pounds 10-1/2 ounces medically classified him as premature. Immediately after Patrick's birth, he was transferred to Boston Children's Hospital where he died two days later of hyaline membrane disease, following treatment in a hyperbaric chamber. His obituary in The New York Times stated that, at that time, all that could be done for a victim of hyaline membrane disease "is to monitor the infant's blood chemistry and to try to keep it near normal levels." Hyaline membrane disease, now more commonly called respiratory distress syndrome, helped spark new public awareness of the disease and further research. In 2004, the disease had an overall mortality of less than 15%ólower among mildly to moderately premature infants, such as with the Kennedys' infant son. Had he been born 50 years later in August 2013, his odds of survival would have been 95%. Treatment modalities are now widely available in developed countries, such as continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), pulmonary surfactant replacement, and improved respirator technology, that either did not exist or were unavailable in 1963.
