1975 Topps Lerrin LaGrow
It's Outta Here!
In the late 1970s, we had a video game system called Odyssey 2. It was like Atari but the games were kind of lame.
The baseball game was pretty cool though. We played it a lot. Anyway, there were no lineups or player names, just funny shapes swinging something that somewhat resembled a bat. So we would sometimes pretend a certain player was batting or pitching.
I realize how ridiculous this sounds, but everytime we said, "Lerrin LaGrow is on the mound," the batter hit a homerun. Every time. And that is what I will always remember about him.
Now I realize I was quite young and my memory is questionable at that age, but yes, EVERY TIME we said it, a bomb followed...at least that is what I remember!
