In the episode where Homer becomes a softball star, who are the 9 Major League ringers that Mr. Burns selects for his team?

Follow that up with what setback each player suffered that prevented them from playing.

Nice job. Now what setbacks did they suffer?

In order to accept an answer, just hit the answer button in the upper right hand corner of the text box. This will keep our tally correct. One other suggestion, if you have a 2 part question, ask the parts all at the same time. Thanks! :-)

Believe it or not, I have the song from that episode on cd:


"Well Mr. Burns had done it,
The power plant had won it,
With Roger Clemens clucking all the while,
Mike Scioscia's tragic illness made us smile,
While Wade Boggs lay unconscious on the barroom tile...

We're talkin' softball...
From Maine to San Diego.
Talkin' softball...
Mattingly and Canseco.
Ken Griffey's grotesquely swollen jaw.
Steve Sax and his run-in with the law.
We're talkin' Homer... Ozzie and the Straw.

We're talkin' softball...
From Maine to San Diego.

Mattingly and Canseco.
Ken Griffey's grotesquely swollen jaw.
Steve Sax and his run-in with the law.

Roger Clemens thought he was a chicken
Sciosia got Radiation poisoning
Wade Boggs was knocked out by Barney
Mattingly was kicked off the team
Jose Canseco saved children from a fire
Griffey had a swollen jaw from some sort of overdose
Sax was arrested
Strawberry was pinch hit for (I suspect he was coked up anyway)
And ozzie smith got lost in the mystery spot.

Canseco's portrayal as a hero is interesting in the light of the last days' news stories...

AA, as Mr. Burns would say, "Excellent!"

That episode is my favorite, glad you guys enjoy it as well.

Steve Sax (in jail): "Don't I get a phone call?"
Cop: "You watch too many movies Sax!"

By far one of the best Simpsons!

Homer: "You're Darryl Strawberry?"
Darryl: "Yes."
Homer: "You play right field?"
Darryl: "Yes."
Homer: "I play right field."
Darryl: "So."
Homer: "So are you better than me?"
Darryl: "Well I've never met you but..............Yes."
