The L/R in question was on a team with a player who wore his helmet in the field. L/R guy commented that he had a teammate a few years earlier who did the same thing. Helmet guy said, "Yeah. That was me."

 

Among the bizarre stories about this guy, that one is among the most bizarre. That, and the one where he got a million dollar check and framed it, saying that he’d always wanted to be a millionaire. When the team checked on the status of the check, they suggested that maybe he could frame a photocopy of it.

Hint for what?
 
I'm not paying much attention ...

is too long, let me summarize. Throws left. Bats right. HOF.

Also, leads off.

Any more clues would be *ahem* stealing a chance from you to figure it out

Finally got the last out.

I was about one or two batters away from posting:


“We know how this ends tonight, the Twins are gonna win, right?

Right?”

Well, except for this virus thing, and the economy, and the fires raging in California...

 

But first place is great!

I hated that <<÷&÷>>&÷&#&÷ too.

Best leadoff man in history, though.


I inferred from this that we were talking about one Rickey Henderson, who played on a few of the A's teams between our world series championships.

But i could be wrong.
