3 years before the Jeffrey Meier incident, Ben McDonald on the mound in yet another controversial home run when the Orioles were [playing the Yankees.
During the 1993 pennant race, McDonald was going to-to-toe with the Scott Kamieniecki in a 0-0 pitcher's duel in the bottom of the 8th inning. With Don Mattingly at the plate and the bases empty, a 16 year-old Yankee fan from Connecticut named Tim McKenzie stole a home run in the right-field stands from Mark McLemore.
Like Jeffrey Maier 3 years later, McKenzie reached over the railing to snatch the ball away from McLemore.
In a post-game interview immediately following the game, Mattingly said that the kid "made a great catch" when he was shown a replay of the theft. Also, Mattingly met and shook hands with the McKenzie in the bowels of Yankee Stadium the next day.
In the photo, it states:
A GIFT: - Don Mattingly, left, shakes hands with Tim McKenzie at Yankee Stadium on Monday, prior to autographing the baseball that McKenzie is holding. The 16 year-old Durham, CT resident caught the ball over the railing, but Mattingly was given a home run in the Yankees' 1-0 win over the Orioles.
For his efforts, McDonald was credited with a complete-game loss, ceding that lone run in his 8 innings on the mound that afternoon.
The Orioles won't lose an affiliate. If Frederick or Delmarva was contracted Aberdeen would just be added. They will still have a Low-A, High-A, AA, and AAA teams. Only the New York Penn League was scheduled to go under which means they will just move one franchise to Aberdeen.
was converting/moving/saving files to my computer. Saw old Lightnin', checked Wiki and they specifically called out this song. From 1960 (at age 48.)
Title reminds me of this old Muddy Waters...
I think it was Leadbelly who also mentioned a "Mojo Hand"... Some kind of OLD, like Haitian/Nawlin's Voodoo superstition of carrying a bag of spices/trinkets/lucky charms. Carry that with you (like Austin Powers' "Mojo"...) for good luck.. The bag was called a Mojo Hand.
Can't think of the Leadbelly song...
On a tangent today of tangents (of tangents of tangents...) Trying to work my way thru it all to get back to OTHER videos I want to watch. And dinner and sh!t...
Got it whittled down to 22 Firefox tabs.....
