The Voice of the Turtle Ernie Harwell he said before every year before the first game of spring training. For, lo, the winter is past. The rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth. The time of the singing of birds is come. And the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.

Sidd Finch Hoax 1985 On April 1, 1985, Sports Illustrated perpetrated a classic journalistic hoax as an April Fools joke. George Plimpton authored a feature story titled 'The Curious Case of Sidd Finch.' It was about a mysterious rookie pitcher who was the talk of the New York Mets' spring training camp. The story said Finch was a French horn player and part mystic, who, through studying yoga, could throw a baseball 168 miles per hour. He pitched wearing a heavy work boot on his right foot while he wore nothing on his left foot. SI got more than 2,000 letters, many from baseball fans who fell for Plimpton's tale. The teaser for the story was the giveaway: 'He's a pitcher, part yogi and part recluse. Impressively liberated from our opulent lifestyle, Sidd's deciding about yoga...' If you write the first letter from each of the words you get 'HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY.'

Featured Member- ChowDog aka Steve I was born and raised an "Army Brat" in Ft. Campbell, KY(1956) and lived the Army life until I was 10 years old. At which time my dad went to Vietnam and moved us back to my mom's and his hometown of Rockingham, NC which I still call "home". I had the typical home life and my parents were the best in the world as far as I'm concerned. I have moved myself several times since then to include a tour in the Air Force from 1974-1978. Went to college at UNC-Greensboro from 1979-1981. Didn't graduate though. Got married and moved back to Rockingham. That one didn't work out! But good things come to those that wait and married the true love of my life, Mary, in 1995. We have lived in Myrtle Beach, SC since then, but prior to that we lived in Atlanta, GA. Life has sure had it's ups and downs, but my "best friend" Mary always seems to make them OK regardless of what happens. We don't have any children but we do have 2 dogs that have us trained very well! I've had several professions over my life time to include working for Campbell Soup for awhile. But the past few years I have been heavily involved in marine electronics installations with my own business up until 2007 when doctors told me my right hip and my back just couldn't take that any more. What do doctors know huh? At least that was my thinking but boy did they prove me wrong! (So did my back and hip!) Got a job with Kodak after that as Director of Photography and Training at the Hard Rock Theme Park in Myrtle Beach that went belly up after their first year and now on lay off. BUT WAIT! Someone actually bought the place and looks like I may be back at work. Keep those fingers crossed!!! I stumbled on to YRT about a year ago. And for awhile my wife would literally have to make me come to bed! I couldn't get enough of this site! The past few months I went through surgery on my back and was laid up for awhile, was getting better, got a nasty sinus infection and that laid me up as well! (Talk about bad luck!) But all is better and I'm back at it again with new stuff to upload. Steve has made on heck of a site! While I don't know him or others on here personally I can tell you out of all the sites on the internet this is most certainly my favorite. People like "Jedgwrn" who supplys tons of trivia, "Marty6697" with all those great videos (where does he find all that stuff????) and "Lava1964" who I believe has every single episode of "What's My Line"! (I love 'um Lava!!) There are others but I've bored everyone enough. :-) One things for sure, Steve deserves massive "Kudos" for all his efforts! A "YRT" fan forever... The other "Steve", "ChowDog"

USS Forrestal Burns- July 29 1969 This is clipped from Trial by Fire: A Carrier Burns, a 1973 film produced by the United States Navy about the devastating 1967 fire aboard USS Forrestal off the coast of Vietnam. The film is unique in that it was produced from actual footage of the fire and emergency response efforts, both successful and unsuccessful, taken by on board cameras. Due to the first bomb blast killing nearly all of the specially trained firefighters on the ship, the remaining crew, who had no formal firefighting training, had to improvise. Though there were many firefighting tools available on the Forrestal, including emergency respirators, the general crew was not trained in their use and so were unable to use them correctly. In response to this tragedy, recommendations made were: development of a remote-control fire-fighting system for the flight deck, development of more stable ordnance, improvement in survival equipment, and increased training in emergency response and fire survival. This film has been used to teach new recruits firefighting and emergency response lessons learned in the mishap.

Johnny Mostil Suicide Attempt 1927 The 1927 Chicago White Sox were baseball's version of a soap opera. During spring training in Shreveport, LA, popular center fielder Johnny Mostil attempted suicide with a razor. He was discovered in a booster's hotel room lying in a pool of his own blood. Several teammates administered first aid, got him medical treatment and saved his life. (Two Shreveport doctors later sued Mostil and the White Sox for non-payment of $6,000 in medical bills.) What prompted Mostil's out-of-the-blue suicide attempt? The official team statement said Mostil was feeling the negative effects of a painful bout of neuritis. However, the whispers were much more interesting. Mostil was rumored to be having an affair with Irene Faber, the wife of White Sox pitcher Red Faber. Shortly after the suicide attempt, Mostil's girlfriend, Margaret Caroll, began dating Bill Barrett, another White Sox player. The two eventually married. Mostil did not play until September. By 1929 his career was over. He died in 1970.

Steve Blass Disease Steve Blass of the Pittsburgh Pirates was one of the most dominating pitchers in the National League in 1971 and 1972. In the 1971 World Series Blass pitched two complete-game victories against the powerful Baltimore Orioles, allowing just two runs. He won a career-high 19 games in 1972 and was a member of the NL All-Star team. Then in 1973, inexplicably, the wheels fell off. Blass mysteriously lost his control. Blass' ERA ballooned to 9.85. He walked 84 batters and struck out just 27 in 88-2/3 innings. (His WHIP was 2.177; on average more than two batters per inning reached base.) Medical exams showed nothing was wrong. Blass spent most of 1974 in the minors trying to regain his form. In 1975, after a miserable spring training with the Pirates, Blass retired from baseball a month before his 33rd birthday. Scholarly baseball fans ever since have referred to a pitcher's swift, sudden, and irreversible loss of control as 'Steve Blass disease.'

Cassius Clay and the Beatles 1964 When the Beatles arrived in the United States in February 1964, Miami was a tour stop. (One Ed Sullivan Show was broadcast from there.) During their time in Florida the Beatles dropped in on Cassius Clay who was in training for his upcoming title encounter with world heavyweight champion Sonny Liston. The Fab Four and the Louisville Lip posed for a few publicity photos together, like the one shown below. According to some reports, Clay--soon to be Muhammad Ali--had no idea who the Beatles were.
