Chip Caray with an ATOBTTR! at the end of the Braves broadcast!

Did he blame the dimensions again for getting lost going to the ballpark?

Didn't Kep actually pitch in a game or two in blow outs?

Pitcing like Keppinger. Lead off HR for Garcia. 6-3 Reds

According to Baseball Reference, Kepp never pitched in the big leagues.

Mis-remembering again. Isn't old age fun?

Lose the pinstripes, and I'm with you. (From a distance, the pinstripes make the uniforms look pink.)Better than the pajama outfits they ear now. Surely to god, the current uniforms need to go away soon. They're horrible.

I hear ya. My memory played tricks on me yesterday too. Turns out Keppinger never wore these at all. Missed by one year.

I should have used William Bergolla instead.

I have figured out why the number font on the BRM replicas worn by the club last month didn't look quite right. They were using the red block numbers from the 1999-2006 jerseys, only without the black drop shadows.
