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.'

Sailor in iconic photo passes at age 86 Glenn Edward McDuffie-He's the sailor in Alfred Eisenstaedt's iconic Life magazine photo grabbing and kissing a nurse in the middle of Times Square after finding out World War II was over. McDuffie died on March 9, but news of his death was reported Friday. He was positively identified as the sailor in the photo in 2007 after many men claimed it was them. According to his obituary, McDuffie joined the Navy in 1942 when he was 15 years old. The obituary said he found a friend to forge his mother's signature, saying he was old enough to serve. On August 14, 1945, McDuffie was part of Eisenstaedt's legendary photo.

Fred Snodgrass Obituary Below is a 1974 New York Times obituary for baseball player Fred Snodgrass. Snodgrass was the New York Giants' usually sure-handed center fielder. But during the deciding game of the 1912 World Series versus the Boston Red Sox, Snodgrass dropped a routine fly ball that led to a Red Sox comeback victory. Sixty-two years later, that error was still paramount in baseball fans' minds.

Don Grady 1944-2012 I'm surprised that no one had posted anything about the passing of Don Grady. Grady was born Don Louis Agrati on June 8, 1944. He was one of the original Mousketeers from the Mickey Mouse Club. However, Grady was most famous for playing middle son Robbie Douglas on the long-running sitcom My Three Sons from 1960 to 1972. Eldest son Mike, played by Tim Considine, left the cast in 1965. (The storyline had him getting married and moving away.) Thus Robbie assumed the new dynamic of being the oldest brother to Chip and Ernie (who was newly adopted). Grady was a musician whose band, The Greefs, made a handful of appearances on the show. Grady later composed musical arrangements, including the theme for The Phil Donahue Show. He died of bone cancer at age 68 on Wednesday, June 27, 2012.

Ernest Borgnine 1917-2012 It has been reported that Oscar-winning actor Ernest Borgnine has died at the age of 95. Renal failure was the cause of death. Borgnine usually played tough characters, but he won his Oscar in 1955 for the title role of Marty, a gentle-hearted butcher who fears he will never find true love because he is unattractive. The movie was made on a small $350,000 budget but became something of a beloved classic. While Borgnine admitted the Oscar did wonders for his acting career, it may have also indirectly led him into disastrous marriages, including one to Ethel Merman which lasted only a month.

Frank Bank aka Lumpy Rutherford Dies Fans of the classic sitcom Leave it to Beaver will be saddened to hear of the passing of Frank Bank, one day after his 71st birthday, on April 13, 2013. Bank played the not-too-bright Clarence "Lumpy" Rutherford. In the show's first season Lumpy was an oversized bully who terrorized both Wally and Beaver. Later Lumpy became the inseparable friend of Wally and Eddie Haskell. After Leave it to Beaver went off the air in 1963, Bank went on to become a successful stockbroker. At one point he was a business partner of Jerry Mathers who played Beaver Cleaver.

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%—lower 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.
