  • Notes

    • BASEBALL: NY Giants pitcher Sal Maglie and Brooklyn Dodgers outfielder Duke Snider are the mystery challengers this evening, and it took the panel quite a while to figure out that there were two guests. Sal's nickname "The Barber" was also referenced tonight. He earned this nickname because of his tendency to keep hitters off the inside of the plate with high-and-tight pitches, thereby giving them a "close shave." - Suzanne (2005)

      BASEBALL: The panel's obvious adoration for "baseball folk" was again present on this episode. You can really tell that this was such a different time, as apparently baseball was holding (at least New York) in thrall in a way that doesn't happen anymore with the fragmentation of the culture. Of course, having the Dodgers and Giants in a pennant race to likely face the "hated" Yankees in the World Series may have had a lot to do with the enthusiasm shown! - Scott V. (2005)
