McKinley Bear batter Mike Healy appears ready to toss the lumber in frustration after striking out against Franklin back in 1973. Do you know who the Eagles backstop is?
Hint: It’s not John Boccabella, Johnny Bench, or John Edwards (or Steve Shahbazian, who has now been positively confirmed as a one-season Franklin Eagle with the power of Bench, an impossible last name like Boccabella, and that same deer-in-the-headlights look of John Edwards).
Once again hundreds of PlayBall! blog readers have been stumped by the weekly Who Am I quiz. The Franklin Eagle catcher shown in the photo above is indeed a John… JOHN LYONS.
Thanks to sports columnist Ray Ratto, who, for the second week in a row, refrained from entering this contest thus forfeiting a chance to display his razor wit and superior sports knowledge. That’s a shame because Ray would have looked great in this week’s grand prize: a pair of Spotbilt SA50 all-purpose cleats, provided by our sponsor Alameda Sporting Goods.
