A long time ago, my oldest brother had a great game called "Be A Manager." All of the players from the 1969 season were included. One of the pitchers was John O'Donoghue, and when you said that name, I immediately thought of his blue card (pitchers were blue, batters were orange.) I just looked it up, and he was indeed your friend's father. ) :)
