Shades of the 1968 "Heidi" Game ... Scooter Gennett's 4th Home Run


Recommended Posts



Most of your are probably familiar with the Heidi catastrophe of 1968, when a thrilling Jets-Raiders game was cut short in the final minute of the 4th quarter for the newest NBC TV-movie.


49 years later, I was watching the Orioles-Pirates game on the MLB Network. With Mark Trumbo finishing up his plate appearance with 2 outs in the 8th inning, MLB Network switched to the Reds-Cardinals game because Scooter Gennett had already hit 3 home runs, and was coming to home plate for a chance to hit an all-time MLB record-tying 4th round-tripper.


Just then ....... MLB network cut off Gennett's plate appearance for a San Giorgio pizza commercial.

And sure enough, 5 minutes later, MLB Network showed A REPLAY of Gennett slamming his 4th home run of the game over the rightfield wall.

Horrible ........ just horrible.
