    • Buster: (reading from book) Juan Marichal was the first player from the Dominican Republic voted into the Hall of Fame.
      Bo: He was a pitcher, right?

      In this episode, Buster learns about Juan Marichal. Marichal was a pitcher for San Francisco Giants in the 1960s. He had an impressive ERA and repeatedly led the National League in victories. However, his career was scarred by scandal when he was ejected from a game and suspended for beating a players' head with his bat following an argument over return throws from the catcher that the player felt were too close to his head.

      His son, José Rijo, was a World Champion pitcher with the Cincinnati Reds.
