Question: Who sat beside Vin Scully in the broadcast booth for the last time during the 1988 World Series?
Last Question: What movie opened with the Yogi Berra quote: “In baseball, you don’t know nothing”?
Answer: Bull Durham
Bull Durham is many people’s favorite baseball movie of all time. The 1988 movie grossed $50 million on a $9 million budget, so it was a commercial success as well as a critical success. Kevin Costner, back in the days when he was in good movies, played “Crash” Davis, a veteran catcher brought in to teach rookie pitcher Ebby Calvin “Nuke” LaLoosh (Tim Robbins) about the game in preparation for reaching the Major Leagues.
Here is one of my favorite scenes of the movie:
