Thank for the memories MLB network

Today on MLBs all time games. They had game four of the 1978 playoffs. When I turned it on.  Rick Rhoden had just come in to pitch in relief. The first thing that popped into my head was the scissors story. If you watched any Dodgers game that he pitched in 1976 on TV. You no doubt heard the story, over and over on how when Rick was a young boy. He slid into a pair of rusty scissors while playing.Story  I was mad when they traded him to the Pirates. Getting Jerry Reuss in return helped ease that pain. But I'll never forget how a young 23 year old right hand pitcher made my summer in 1976.
