    Remember when Lerrin LaGrow showed up at halftime and the Mud Dogs won the Bourbon Bowl, do ya? No, wait. That was Bobby Boucher.

    Actually Lerrin LaGrow was involved in a notable baseball moment.

    In 1972, LaGrow had a 1.32 earned run average (Adjusted ERA+ of 240) in 16 games. He also pitched 1 scoreless inning in Game 2 of the 1972 American League Championship Series against the Oakland Athletics. LaGrow's single inning led to one of the most memorable moments of the 1972 ALCS. In the bottom of the 7th inning, Bert Campaneris came to bat, having had 3 hits, 2 runs scored, and 2 stolen bases in his first 3 at bats in the game. LaGrow's first pitch hit Campaneris in the ankle. Campaneris staggered for a moment, glared at LaGrow and then flung his bat toward LaGrow. The bat spiraled at LaGrow five feet off the ground, but LaGrow ducked, and the bat narrowly missed LaGrow, landing a few feet behind the mound. A bench-clearing brawl ensued, and Tigers manager Billy Martin had to be restrained by umpires and teammates to prevent him from going after Campaneris. Both LaGrow and Campaneries were suspended for the rest of the ALCS

    Was he also a member of the Chisox when they wore the "Knickers" for a few games?

    Does he have a ring from the 80 Phillies?
