You Should Read Deadspin’s “Homer At the Bat” Article

The 1992 Simpsons episode, “Homer at the Bat” got higher ratings than The Cosby Show and the Winter Olympics. Nine pro baseball players recorded voiceovers over the span of a season as their teams passed through L.A. to play the Dodgers and the Angels. It’s the episode in which Homer creates a Wonder Bat out of a tree branch that was stuck by lightning.

Here’s the lineup: Roger Clemens, Darryl Strawberry, José Canseco, Wade Boggs, Ken Griffey, Jr., Steve Sax, Ozzie Smith, Don Mattingly, and Mike Scioscia. Read the full Deadspin article; you’ll be glad you did: The Making Of “Homer At The Bat,” The Episode That Conquered Prime Time 20 Years Ago.

PS: I’ve been so busy, but I won’t allow this blog to sit still for more than a week, and that last post about the Westminster Dog Show was even more of a cop out than this one. The quality content will come in waves.
