Simpsons at the bat

November 26, 2012 · 0 comments

Ninety Feet of Perfection posted this entry about all the Major leaguers who have appeared on The Simpsons.

The classic, of course, is the first one — Homer at the bat — which features Don Mattingly, Jose Canseco, Darryl Strawberry, Roger Clemens, Ken Griffey Jr., Steve Sax, Ozzie Smith, Wade Boggs, and Mike┬áScioscia. But other episodes include pop culture references to many others.

I’ve posted a few bits about this topic, linking to one of my favorite — now sadly defunct — podcasts, Extra Hot Great. Then there was the entry that marked to 20th anniversary of the HATB episode. And this one on “Dancin’ Homer” that gives a nod to Lou Gehrig’s famous farewell speech.
