Lest we forget: Don Rickles

April 6, 2017 · 0 comments

The acerbic comedian died today at the age of 90.

A hardcore fan, he was frequently seen at those celebrity games as chronicled in Joe Siegman’s book, Bats, Balls, and Hollywood Stars: Hollywood’s Love Affair with Baseball, released in 2014.

Rickles enjoyed talking about the game. Here he speaks with David Letterman in 1998. And here he talks about the legendary Vin Scully.

So long, Mr. Potato Head.
