20 Years Ago This Year

the movie "major league" came out 20 years ago this year, and to acknowledge this moment in cinema history, last night the cleveland indians invited bob uecker to throw out the first pitch. uecker, the long tine milwaukee broadcaster, was a central character in the movie playing harry doyle the fictional indians broadcaster. it was harry doyle that gave this blog its namesake.

unfortunately, the online landscape has changed in the time that this blog has been published, so i am unable to find a video clip of the famous call but all fans of the movie know what i am talking about.
