Hack Wilson is one of my favorite baseball players of all time. The guy led a hard life.

I only got Mordecai "Three-Finger" Brown because Mr. Burns suggests him as the pitcher for the nuclear power plant's softball team.

Can you also accept "Let's get some runs!" for Harry Caray's catchphrase? He yelled it after every game after "Take Me Out to the Ball Game." That was the first thing I thought of. The guest singers at Wrigley still do it.

Technically you're only supposed to yell it when the Cubs are losing. It's trademark Harry Carey, but he started doing the 7th inning stretch and "let's get some runs" when he was the White Sox announcer, so although it's identified with the Cubs now it wasn't always theirs.

Let's get some runs will work now.
