For August 29, 2007. Twenty years ago today, minor-league baseball catcher Dave Bresnahan lost his job in the fallout of a stunt ever after known as 'The Great Potato Caper.' I describe one of the funniest plays in baseball history, and the reaction from all quarters over the years.
An article written about six weeks after The Great Potato Caper, one of my principal sources for this podcast, can be found here. You can see an image of (reportedly) the actual potato used here.
Episode music is from "Splat the Rat" by Father Rock. Our theme music is composed and performed by Marc Rose.
