One of my all time favorite calls on radio and yes, it really happened. A slow roller between the mound and first base.
Denny Matthews: ... and the pitcher was off the mound like a mongoose.
Fred White: Like a ... mongoose, Denny?
Denny Matthews: Yes, Fred, ... like a mongoose.
(both laugh hysterically)
RIP, Fred. You have been, and will always, be missed.
