During its long history minor league baseball has produced a lot of bizarre occurrences. Sports announcer Tim Hagerty will share some of them from his vast collection of amazing and amusing happenings culled from newspaper archives and the Baseball Hall of Fame Library in Cooperstown, New York. What was the call when the ball was shot out of the sky? Why did a manager disguise himself as the team’s mascot? Where do home runs hit in one state land in another? Why did angry fans throw books at an umpire? It’s all in Tales from the Dugout.
