Somewhere I have a pic of Ken Kaiser picking up a fan in Boston who had fallen over the fence near home plate while trying to grab a foul ball.  Has anyone else seen that ?

The umpires are going to run out of room on their sleeves.

Wasn't he also a pro wrestler?

There it is !!!   I love the expression of the kid in the background.    Great stuff.

 

go down about 40-50 rows on this one. the line with the world series ring from Minnesota. There is a mud wrestling picture with a guy and 1 girl in the ring with the other girl outside the ring. He wrestled the Gonzo Sisters in a mud wrestling bout once.

What do you think. too bad he is all muddy. with a clean face it would be easy.

And of course he was the plate umpire in the famous Weaver/Haller video.

condolences to the family.
