Maybe some of you had heard this one before, but it's new to me, and I love it! My friend Charlie passed it along to me today. The whole story can be found here. But it begins:
Granted, there were no dramatic home runs, the double-A Williamsport Bills were not fighting for the Easter League Championship, and there was no national media spotlight.
Most of all, there wasn't even a baseball.
But the night Dave Bresnahan fooled everyone on the field and in the stands by throwing a potato instead of a ball has forever put the former catcher and the city of Williamsport in the annals of baseball history.
