When I was a little kid I'd watch the Game of the Week, announced by Joe, with my older brother, Methusela Julio Franco
"Shimmael, schlimazel, hasenpfeffer incorporated!"
(I'm ashamed to admit I know this.)
but yeah John R. Tunis books were great.
It’s that charisma and uncle-like personality that has always made him among our favorites, beginning all the way back to when he was a co-host of NBC’s “Today Show,” a frequent guest host of “The Tonight Show” or his countless appearances on programs from “To Tell the Truth” and “What’s My Line?” to co-hosting coverage of the annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York.
(Was the first baseman on his team nicknamed highpockets?)
Nope. He was the cocky young power-hitting OF.
I remember him on the Today Show, but not on Tonight.
My first encounter with Garagiola was in the form of a book from the library when I was maybe 11, Baseball is a Funny Game. Had to have been one of the first baseball books I ever read.
