Grab your mitt and a bag of peanuts, because BUZZR is at bat! Tune in on Sunday, July 9th as baseball’s best step off the diamond and onto the game show stage.
Starting at 4:00 pm ET, catch What’s My Line? episodes featuring baseball legend Joe DiMaggio, pitcher Sal Maglie, and the ’56 Cincinnati Reds. This was the year that the Reds were attempting to break the record for the most home runs hit by a team in a single season. At the time, the New York Giants held the record for the 1947 season with 221 home runs. The Reds were able to tie this record, but didn’t succeed in beating it.
And later stay tuned as pitcher Don Sutton joins the Match Game team.
The night then culminates in extra innings with the Oakland A’s facing off against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Family Feud. The episodes were shot following the two teams facing off in an epic World Series earlier that year. Game 1 of the series included a come from behind, walk-off home run by Kirk Gibson off of Dennis Eckersley. In addition to Eckersley, BUZZR’s Family Feud episodes also include A’s pitchers Dave Stewart, Bob Welch and Rick Honeycutt, all who previously pitched for the Dodgers. Now that’s a feud!
