Grimsley describes Belle's corked bad retrieval 


This is quite funny.  It took him four innings to climb through the celing to switch bats.

That's awesome. I never heard the story... for some reason I had thought it was Belle who had retrieved the bat. I think I was too young back then to remember this.

What a classic. Thanks for sharing.

I couldn't have done that- for no other reason than I would have been humming the Mission: Impossible theme the whole time I was engaged in the act and someone would have heard it noidea

I love how he moved the tile to the wrong room and there was someone in there.  How bizzaro must that stadium have been that a ceiling tile would move, you would see  someone up there, and not report something like that?  That so cracks me up.

He was problably thinking about how reporting it would come across. 

"I swear the celing tile moved and there was this face there.  Then the tile moved back into place.  Hey, why are the police here?  Why am I being handcuffed?  Why am I in this padded room?"
