"Fans deserve PK steinberger's up first. He called it here. He wrote in advanced judge hitting number 62 this afternoon, which are the top 5 most famous home runs ever hit in where does judges fall? Yeah, so pKa, I saw that we come in with the overnight note that I got from Taylor and I must say like in the moment I'm like, oh my God, I want to get this one right, but I don't think I am able to process all the homers, but off the top of my head, I look at Aaron's number 7 15 as the most famous home run for me, Kirk Gibson would certainly be in that that home run he hit in the 1988 World Series off Dennis eckersley. Yeah, judge number 62, Mark McGuire number 62, whether you are upset about what happened with PDs with him or not. The fact is, I think a lot of people will remember where they were when Maguire hit that line drive home run for number 62. Roger Maris number 61, it wasn't alive for that. We've been watching a replay of that for many years. I get Kirby Puckett from the World Series in 1991, is a big one. And David freeze from 2011. Joe Carter maybe from the Blue Jays won the World Series and he walked it off at the end of that. Bill mazaro ski. So I think they're 5 in that in that group a 9 I just gave you and Taylor, what else did I miss? I think that's a pretty good list. Bond is 73, maybe? I don't think that that's, you know, I said on get up this morning. You know, the bonds is the all time home run leader. Number 73, okay? That's record stands, but I don't think people were sitting there going, wow. You know, when he got there and I don't think it's, I don't think that's burned into people's memories the way that, say, Kirk Gibson's home run is. That is very fair. Dominic writes in since the Yankees won their division in commanding fashion, the conversation in New York has to be focused on the Met's collapse besides the brave, seemingly historic comeback since June 1st. What went wrong for the mets? Dominic, I just, I'm going to push back. I mean, the Met's played on a hundred win pace for four months from June 1. I don't think they really did anything wrong. I think the braves just played out of their minds. I thought AJ adventure had it exactly right. And I know, you know, because it's the mets, and it's New York. We're going to pick them apart. I think this was a case of the braves is playing great. I don't really find a lot of fault in the mints. Matt stock writes in, isn't it is an a combined no hitter basically the same thing as a team combining to hit four homers in a game, a nice team accomplishment, but that's about it. Matt, I'm with you. I don't really find it that compelling when I hear about a combined no hitter. It is. It's like a cool milestone and the players are involved in it. They get to have a baseball Jersey signed by all the players and that's great, but I don't really care that much about them to be honest with you. At golf life rag writes in given the purposeful failure of the Williams Han dictatorship to do their jobs in Chicago. Why aren't they being fired, missed the playoffs? 19 the last 22 years and 9 of the last ten under Han, but nothing, but silence and no change. Yeah, they built a great team for 2021. They ran away with the American League central. But we've addressed this in the past. Jerry reinsdorf is the most loyal owner in sports. And he absolutely believes in his guys. He hangs on to his guys, probably to a fault. And, you know, they're going to be White Sox fans who believe that this is a case where he's been relying on the same teams for too long. I think rickon's done a good job with running that team. Kimberly gar Hart at jolly bone writes in. I remember sitting at my kitchen table, my parents house, and Maguire hit 62, and by sheer dumb luck decided to delay my grocery grocery store trip to hear Aaron judge hit number 60 two in my studio apartment, where were you buster? I was actually in my car on the way to get takeout from a Korean place here in Bozeman, Montana. And then my text dropped in from my son, and he said, you know, Aaron judge did it, and then of course I raced back to the house and watched the replays of it pretty cool. I was kind of like Roger Maris junior. I was like yesterday afternoon Taylor. I was on hold for SportsCenter. I was on call. In other words, if he breaks the record, then you jump immediately on television. I was released from that duty. Afternoon, I was like, I gotta go get some food. Roger Maris junior had that tweet in the drafts all day long. He was ready to fire it off. Yep. Louisville slugger writes in you and Tim mentioned how Terry Francona will someday be in the hall, but will he be wearing a socks cap or a Cleveland cap, two championships with the socks, one pennant with Cleveland, but given how he left the socks, it feels like he's a Cleveland guy now. And given his family history with the Cleveland team, you know, given the fact that his dad was so tied to the Indians, I think he absolutely goes in with a Cleveland cap. Last one for today, Mitchell at tigers of Detroit writes in which rangers breakout players most likely to repeat the performance in 2023. Nathan Lowell or Martin Perez. I like Perez. I think he had a terrific season. I think he's evolved as a pitcher. All righty, that's it for bleacher tweets hashtag bleacher tweets on Twitter. Get some playoff questions coming for Friday's pod. We're excited to get things going in the postseason here. That's it for today I might thanks to Jesse Todd, Sarah and Taylor and Aaron judge who created a summer memories for us all. It was a lot of fun to see him go through that chase. Have a great day, everybody. Thanks for listening. Stay safe and remember. Hating inequality based on skin color is something we need to bite against every single day.

"So the first tweet comes from David at baseball fan 1918. If you are a GM with the option to sign or have the assist to trade for the off season, who are you all in on? Judge de Grom or Otani. Yeah, and I'm just assuming that David meant to type assets there. That's a fun question. Of course, there are different places of time. He's not a free agent until after next year, de Grom can opt out of his contract. This off season, which he said he's going to do. And then you have Aaron judge. I would say ohtani probably among the three, just in part because of age, he's the youngest of three guys still in his 20s. What do you think, Sarah? I mean, I love Otani and also, I mean, even though Aaron judge is great, I always have a soft spot for ohtani. And so I would pick him to. Don't come for me, Yankees fans. Next up is Ernesto dio. Buster on a scale of zero to a hundred. What's the likelihood of the Dodgers or Padres offering judge a one to three contract with an AAV around 65 million plus? Maybe team options and opt outs like Korea's deal. Any chance judge would take that deal? No, I don't think so Ernesto, I suspect he's in a position now to get the massive contract with a team where he knows that's going to be his club for the rest of his career. You know, Scott Boris, you've seen through the years when he negotiates contracts. You know, he likes to keep flexibility. He likes that players opt out, but at some point, as we saw with Bryce Harper's contract, Harper was like, I want to know where I'm going to be. And there were no opt outs. It was just the cashing in that one big lottery ticket. And I think that's what judge going to do this winner. Next is here the number four FRL is that here for real. I don't know, but he's next. Pitchers don't want to give up a historic home run. Do we actually remember who gives up the home run? We should abandon this narrative and encourage pictures to challenge hitters on historic runs, agreed? Yeah, I think we do. You know, whether it's a big home run, a big moment, you know, Ralph Branca famously gave up the game winning home run to Bobby Thompson, the 1951 playoffs. And as the years went along, those two guys became good friends and they would do signings together. Dennis eckersley and Kirk Gibson in 1988 World Series Gibson hit the game winning home run for the Dodgers and limped around the bases and eckersley shared in that moment of throwing out the first pitch at the World Series a few years ago and they both seem to really enjoy it. Al downing gave up Henry Aaron's 715th home run in 1974. I never saw him run away from that. I actually think some pictures are fine with it. They understand that, hey, you know what? They were competing. They shared in history. I don't I've never talked to Mike basic about giving up the home run number 7 56 to Barry Bonds, but my memory, my sense of that moment was, he was okay with it. Like he was fine with it. Being in that moment. So I would push back on the idea that pitchers don't necessarily want to be that guy. I would say this. Michael walk a pitching for the Red Sox last night. He did not want to be that guy. It was pretty clear. He was pretty careful. Yeah. Why wouldn't you want to be a part of history in my opinion? Yeah, right. Doctor Steve a Yankees have played 148 games. Does judge get extra history points if he gets to 62 home runs in less than roofs 154 games and Maris is one 62. And is it any further distinction from tainted bonds? Yeah, I don't think casual fans are going to remember that. They're only going to remember the final number, but you've seen graphics all summer about where judges in his pace and number of games relative to where Ruth and Maris were. And our last one comes from Scottie Barnes, this one's going to be fun. So Mike Trout said, enjoy your new lodge ranch in Montana. What you have a ranch? Are you neighbors with Ted Turner, more info, please? Yeah, so he was giving me a hard time. I don't have a ranch. You know, I have a house, it's a regular old house. It's beautiful house. It's a new house and I'm excited about it. And putting it together, it's pretty cool. And as we finish up, Sarah, I'd say this. I mean, you were watching the video. Quinny tried to, I don't know if you could hear it, but quin was all over that segment with Carl rabbit. Like she was like bouncing around this room. I've said if he gave her a ball in this room where I taped the podcast, it would sound like a hockey player bouncing against the boards. And from the pictures Taylor and I have seen of the backyard, everything it's so gorgeous and I bet quinny is in heaven there. Oh, yeah, to the point and she is she's ball obsessed. I can tell you this. Nothing else in the world matters. You're trying to teach her, look, when you have a ball, you got to go to the bathroom first before we throw you the ball. Please go to the bathroom 'cause we've had situations where you play with it for 20 minutes with the ball and then she comes into the house and then she goes

"The late great Vin Scully, who passed away yesterday at age 94. That, to me, and again, what you consider the greatest cause of the calls you witness live, I remember watching that on TV when that happened back in 1988 and Kirk Gibson, who couldn't even, I mean, he could hardly walk. Gets up there and hits the home run to win game one of the World Series. And then afterwards, there's probably and he did it so well, once you announce what happened, he was quiet. He was quiet. It seemed like he was quiet for a minute, and I've always loved that about announcers who know, you know, sports announcers, especially on TV. On radio, you've got to, you're probably have to talk more. But on TV just to witness everything going on, sometimes you don't need words and he knew he knew when to say things as a sports announcer, and he knew especially as a baseball announcer. And he knew when not to say things. And to me, that's an art because in baseball, even on TV, there is a lot of other talk that you're throwing in. You're throwing in stories and statistics that I was looking here that at bat for Kurt Gibson, okay? And that's the one just to, for him at bat, was almost ten minutes long. Wow. Just one guy at bat, and then he hits the home run. And so you're giving statistics and all the different information about his injury and that he hasn't played, and so you have to constantly in baseball fill in. And I've always found that amazing. You have to fill in and fill in and then all of a sudden recognize okay, now it's time to shut up. And I'm going to shut up for a significant period of time. And let the event take it. And he was just a master at doing that. Well, there's no greater crescendo than the sound of the crowd, of the fans going nuts. You know, you don't have to say and the crowd goes wild. If it's that bad. Right. You let the crowd go wild, and you let them do what they do. I like it in the doldrum of the summer. When they're calling a game, it's not a playoff series. It's not the World Series. It's just, you know, light spring, early summer, and then they just bring it in personal stories. And my wife came on. Funny. There's garbage all over the street. I couldn't believe it. And I hear a little hairy carrier. I can't believe that my garbage was all over the street. About three lowered outside. No, we laugh. I mean, it's when you think about what it can be, there's humor to it. But there's a great art to be able to do it. Because you think about creativity. Brian Esther calls TCU men's basketball and she's a football. And in faster moving sports. You know, especially like basketball getting down to the wire. I mean, it sounds sometimes like these folks, including Bryant, have two brains, three brains, because they're just, I mean, they're just all over it. They're so good at it. But in baseball, it's not always that fast pace. I mean, it's not that fast paced ever. Maybe we should do speed baseball. But Vin Scully was the voice of the Dodgers for 60 7 years. You know, that means there were people, a number of Dodgers fans that never heard any other voice. Yeah. Exactly. All of their life, right? It's one thing to think about like Madden and football for me. Madden, you know, just I think was that he just, he had that voice, he had that presence, that way of phrasing things. Yeah. And they all do, but some are all. Some are all had that had that distinct kind of the voice that you say, oh, well, God dictated these guys are going to be baseball announcers. And in 5 years old, you know, no, they can't be that nuclear science, the scientists not other. They're baseball announcers. Yeah, well, and he was, yeah, he was the concept well, thanks, John. You know, he just got but you know, I think of the fans, I think, of the ones who just that have that all out loyalty dedication to a team and that voice is there. It's ever present. I don't know. It feels like home. You know what I mean? It feels when you're listening to the game. When you're watching the game, it feels right. Everything feels right. And for 67 years, the Dodgers had the Dodgers fans had been fully. And I've had I have great, great respect for sports announcers, a number have actually, I won't say worked for me, but technically they actually did the radio voice for the Buffalo Bills, John Murphy did. Yeah, he did baseball. He did baseball for me. The great sports sports talk show host out of buffalo, Howard Simon. Who's first cousin, by the way, is Jason Alexander. I gave him his first play by play job. He doesn't do play that play, but he was great at it. I think that's where he should have ended, where he should have ended up. Used to listen to Pete Weber, who now is the play by play guy for the national predators, hockey team. Yeah. And he did minor league hockey, and he could weave and do those type of stories. But it's really interesting because probably nobody except maybe in Fort Worth, Texas know it, but you know my former producer, my former producer and phone screener, when I did my local show, filled in a lot, Emil Moffat, who now works for NPR in Atlanta. He used to do minor league baseball for the Fort Worth cats. I did a game with him for the Fort Worth cats as Mary Carey. And it was completely unscripted. And we laughed about as hard as you can laugh. We had so much fun. First of all, I loved going to watch the Fort Worth cats play. I loved minor league games and they just had that just relaxed intimate feel. But yeah, Emil called me one day and said, hey, you want to come sit in? And do Harry Carey during an entire and I ended up, yeah, it was, it was so much fun, and he was really, really good. Well, and the thing was, I knew him as my producer phone screener. Right. And when he was when I did my local show, he is a Seinfeld. He is the Seinfeld aficionado. He knows every line probably from every Seinfeld episode. There is nobody who knows more. And I don't think I saw him about maybe oh, maybe 6 years ago. 6, 7 years ago, he was in town and so we got together. But we still communicate back and forth. And it's all Seinfeld stuff. It reminds me of it. This is a Seinfeld. And especially even with the Biden administration, we don't really talk politics, but it's like, oh, Biden just did this, you know, this is and he goes, oh, yeah, Kramer did that. But when so he was and I'd never heard him as a baseball announcer, and it was one Saturday afternoon. And I said, oh, let me turn him on at the

"I literally thought the game was over. I couldn't. I couldn't believe what I just watched. And then Jared Goff Marxism down. And at the 11 hits the game winner on the last play and the entire place went bananas and good for them. I mean it was amazing to watch. I didn't think they had a chance and to pull it out. Man, I know they have to be feeling good and good for them rightly so. No, I mean, you just quoted inadvertently Jack buck calling that Kirk Gibson home run. I don't believe what I just saw. To characterize what felt honestly like a championship. I mean, let's be real about this. Why is sports great? It's because a win a first win of the season on December 5th can be per all of these videos that I've now seen come out of this game and the locker room and otherwise Alex it seemed the way they sprayed water on each other and genuinely just had these massive smiles. It felt like something close to a Super Bowl, which is something that only comes through suffering. And now, and now let's be honest here too, right? The suffering in the other part of that stadium, my lord, the Minnesota Vikings, like let's run through some of their season. We've been on this all year. You and me just laughing at this. But week one, they lose on a walk off field going over time. Week two they lose on a missed field goal, add in a couple more really close shaves. You get to week 8, lose on a touchdown less than a minute left, week 9, lose on a walk off field goal and overtime, week 13. Congratulations, you're the thing that prevented the Detroit Lions from being the first Owen 16 and one team at NFL history. Yeah, just add that to the year for the Vikings. Because that's what they'll get remembered at this point. They lost a nail biter with the niners and kind of fell out of the wild card race and then to lose to the Lions the following week. I feel bad for him. I feel really bad. They've led by 7 points Pablo at some point in every single game this year. So they've led every single game. And yet they have a losing record. I saw a crazy stat in the fourth quarter as they were trying to mount to come back. Cousins in the fourth quarter is 27 and one with a lead. He is two and 25 when trailing. So he has this huge this has kind of been his MO. He hasn't been able to get a comeback and then Dan Campbell tries to hand it to him. And I thought, well, like, man, if there's a, you know, if you're in a slump and you're looking to get out, just play the Lions. And that's kind of what I was thinking and no, he's two and 26 now Pablo. Correct. When trailing in the fourth. So how dare I know? How dare we have ever doubted Dan Campbell? A visionary. Yep. Again, and when you go 15 games in a row, losing like that, week in and week out and your coaches are preaching the same thing and you're hearing these speeches and everybody's trying to cheer each other up. But you start believing it at some point. You know, it's hard. It's hard to buy in. And to change to the culture change to going out there and being a part of that team and that organization and again, it's great for them for going out and despite all that finding a way to get a W..

I'm sure are having a lot of conversations on their side of things he's not going to be affected by the moment we don't Who's not going to be affected by that moment. This is a fascinating match up to me and one of the interesting questions i have. Tim is what Daybreak abbots will do it first base because there are certainly combinations that he could play in. Cody bellinger maybe at first base But i wonder how he'll be pulled emotionally by the possibility of signing out using our pools at first base in this game because this year albert you know like a lot of hitters. They get get older. He struggled against high-velocity pitchers opie was under six hundred. The type of pitchers that he had a lot of success against zo. Ps about eight fifty with furnace pitchers. He he did well against those guys. And adam wainwright he'll be thrown from seventy miles an hour to eight miles an hour. The type of pitcher did albert hits against and you know that his heart rate's going to be in good shape in that moment. And and. I'm sure dave roberts gonna think you know what this could be one of those You know like kirk gibson type moment. Where in all pro will respond to the stage. And so i'm curious to see what he does. It first base. What are you seeing this matchup. Well i love the pool holes bellinger decision and cody. Bellinger has not swung the bat. Well little better lately. So i'm with you. I think he looks and says i'm gonna play albert at first. Because he was born for these moments even though he's not the hitter that he used to be. And i can't wait to see adam wainwright. He is had buster in a lot of other seasons. A cy young season but this year with this ridiculous pitching in the national league with wheeler and burns and buehler ensures her He's not gonna win the cy young but i take him right now with the way he's throwing in any game and he's going to be up for this and you're right in yati will come up with a great game plan for the dodgers and just keep in mind with the dodgers. They led the league in runs scored buster but they just had been told they just haven't been the same offensive team moving guys around doing little things like that. We'll see way right. Can exploit that a little bit and pitch really well and with max scherzer against adam wainwright. Please signed me up for that one every day. Then it's gonna be an absolute blast.

And you keep moving, the better you feel and the more you work on your voice therapy, the stronger your voices and you know you can hear it in Kirk these days. He's been working so much on it. He sounds fantastic. And I think that if you do that work and you know, do the exercises you you feel the benefits and other people around. You see and hear that. Benefits. So, you know, I think it's important. I think it's something like movement is incredibly important. That Bill will definitely speak to as well. Yeah, Bill, Let's bring you in.

But then once he sort of owned it, you know he was able to really start making a difference in his in his own health and his own journey. Yeah, I I had a really rare circumstance where I kind of came out right away at a friend's party. Two weeks after being diagnosed, I told everyone Like, you know, poor guy who's hosting the party, right? But I told like all my friends and, um you know the thing, and that's not the right decision for everybody. But it allowed me to be then kind of engage and start raising money publicly and everything else. So for me that was very helpful, But definitely a lot of people go through that where they want to hide it in. It's such a strange disease. I can walk a marathon, but I can't button the left sleeve on my shirt. Right, and that that's really embarrassing. I could sit there for an hour trying to button my shirt and I can't do it. So, uh yeah, It can be very embarrassing and marginalize people that way, And it's great to bring awareness and share stories and talk about different experiences with Parkinson's. The more people here by the know about it, the easier it is to become a part of, you know, helping raise money or awareness of what's happening. Um, tell us a little bit about this. This long walk. This is this is crazy. Yeah. Yeah, well, you know, um, exercise is important. So we're going to go on a long walk in September. September 14th. We're going to look down at the continent of Great Britain from John O Groats, which is the northernmost Continental point and We're going to start walking to London and then we're going to run the London Marathon. So 17 days 40 Miles a day back to back, no breaks, and we're going to, you know, really put ourselves out there and just try and raise a lot of awareness that that's a total of 670. Miles. That's right. Yeah, exactly. Yeah, that is that is a long way and hopefully you will bring a lot of awareness to this. Michelle. How important is like this event? I mean, we're standing here. Tom Izzo is up there Speaking. You know, the coach of Michigan State basketball. Kirk Gibson. Obviously.

"Where if there were two outs. And he was on deck when he was supposed to come on a big tall guy he would leave his his leg guard and stuff on because you know if if the guy play gets out he's just going to have to catch and and i haven't seen anyone do that in big league game. I've seen them. I've maybe seen it in college games before have been a long time and i was like. Why don't they do that in big league games. Have you seen a big leader. That i have not seen a big do that up. But i've noticed. A otani accidentally left his base running gloves in his back pocket when he went up to the mountains in a recent cameron realized terrible when he realized of course. When does not look like a therapy periods in my life where i've done two jobs at the same time like When i was first a fulltime editor and writer for baseball prospectus. I was also working basically full time job at bloomberg sports for a while and that was exhausting. Or like when. I've done my day job writing and doing the podcast and working on a book on the side like that's pretty grueling. But i didn't do it forever and it was tough while i was doing it. And you know had to make various other sacrifices and my personal life or whatever to make that work just from an hourly perspective and that's tough in that's draining and that's not even like physically draining and i was like you know doing related things in in all of those jobs so it wasn't like two separate skills so that just kind of puts it in perspective for me that he's done this for so long really and when i was watching him on wednesday when he hit the home run and talk about fatigue remember. This is a day game after a night game in. He pitched seven innings and batted four times but in that at bat he fell the ball off his foot and rate was hopping around and then he fouled a ball off his surgically repaired back knee and he was hobbling around looking like kirk gibson for a while and then he hit a home run one hundred fourteen point five miles per hour like you know a couple of pitchers later. It's like all right. He superhuman but just thinking about the extra wear and tear that he takes like even. Just you know fallon balls off himself taking as many at bats as he does and hitting the ball as hard as he does. Most starting pitchers don't have to deal with that. So just like. Imagine the bruises that he accumulates. most pitchers certainly most. Al pitchers just don't have to worry about like that must take a toll and so i'm just saying safer this while he's doing it and hopefully we are on this podcast and let him start the all star game as a pitcher and a hitter where we riot and you know the angels were eighteen and twenty two when trout cut hurt. I believe i think they're twenty six and twenty since cut out so Were as ally. And i'm going to become a war true. I think it's true. What they always said were is just the stat designed to make mike trout. Look good doesn't actually translate to team. Success angels are winning without truck. They didn't need any anyway now. It it's a small and they will definitely be better with trap. But i tweet james. O'hara who pointed out that the angels record eighty five games twenty seventeen. They were forty three and forty two twenty eighteen forty three hundred forty two two thousand nineteen forty two and forty three this year. Forty three and forty two just so stubbornly five hundred year after year although this year. They've done it largely without trout and often without anthony down also. A tiny has played better than trout. Well trapped has been out so that helps to yeah. It does help but who who needs them. Hit a home run. You have more time as you round the basis to be to be ginger with your you know yondo fouled off body parts. So that's what they said on the broadcast. They didn't call the home run but they said i bet he hopes that he can just trot around the bases this time and he did. And this is another example of the prediction thing. Testers probably telling everyone see. I called it quite new world opens. Aspen yeah i was thinking also because In this most recent start otani was working with mac stasi angels catcher and that is a change because kurt suzuki has basically been his personal catcher since early. April that's been a source of some frustration to me. People were watching otani closely. Because kurt suzuki is one of the worst. Framing catchers baseball and maxine. One of the best and madden has said you know. I like how they work together. I don't care about framing as much as others. Well no one cares about framing more than we do so it's been somewhat painful you know especially because Otani command will come and go at times. And sam want him to get every borderline call he can and seeing suzuki not get him those calls. Maybe he's a great pitch. Collar may be. He's good at settling otani down. Maybe he is Beneficial in other ways but the framing is rough at times and so madden put stacy and he said because he liked the offensive matchup and stacey was one of the hitting heroes in that game as well. But i can't say what a comfort it was to see. Good framing catcher getting otani. Some of those borderline calls that he might not have gotten otherwise. That was a lot of fun. And we got an email from listener. Seth who wrote in to say that one of his problems with catcher framing as a valuable skill. That should be kept in the game. And you know as a reason to be perhaps against the robo zone. He says he'd be interested if someone could take a highlight reel of two random starting. Mlb catchers and show them catching reframing say. Two hundred randomly selected pitches without seeing how the empire called the result. If you could identify the better framer my position is that i definitely couldn't do that. And would only judge their ability based on the results has called by the empires which is fine skill but makes it harder for me to appreciate as a skill that the player has not doubting the abilities. Just that i can't differentiate with my eyes as to who is good or bad and that probably goes for a lot of baseball fans..

Everybody knows the story here and He played the baseball card. Well, I'm going to play baseball, then do you remember? Uh, Remember Vince Coleman, the baseball player. Do. He was a heck of a punter and kicker as well. Florida State I believe didn't know that I know he was speech story was very fast. Did he run track to? Um, I think he did. But I want to say it was like Florida A and M, where he was a punter and kicker. It had, like, really, really great status as a punter and kicker there as well. And our texture was right about David Buscher. Pitched for the White Sox and 62 63 threw a complete game shutout in the 63 season. That's crazy. Yeah, did not know that about him. I remember him strictly as a basketball player rack racking my brain, Kirk Gibson. He was drafted by the then ST Louis Cardinals football team as a wide receiver. That's right, great athlete.

And he actually led to the gym and rebounding that year, and he did get drafted in three sports like gave him, Dave and I think to other people all total that did that. That's interesting.
