MLB – 1984 – Unofficial Baseball Handbook Special – Orioles C Rick Dempsey Proves Life Is A Stage


As we have said before…..the guys who hosted the MLB special The Unofficial Baseball Handbook….were masters of illuminating the lighter side of baseball….as every of  video that they did had a hearty dose of humor in laced throughout each segment….as evidence by this video herewith featuring Orioles C Rick Dempsey proving to the world that life is but a stage….even on a rainy day in baseball.

John Rikard Dempsey (born September 13, 1949) is an American former professional baseball player…. who played for 24 seasons as a catcher in Major League Baseball from 1969 to 1992….most notably for the Baltimore Orioles…..as Dempsey was known for being one of the best defensive catchers of his era….but was probably most famous for his well-known rainy day show while impersonating an opposing players’ approach to hitting a home run and running the bases on a wet field….and we at ImaSportsphile are absolutely delighted to have this “nugget of gold” in our treasure chest of vintage memories…..as Dempsey provides several different versions of his “home run trot”
