Bernie Carbo

Born on today's date, Bernie Carbo.

"I probably smoked two joints, drank three or four beers, got to the park, took some amphetamines, drank a cup of coffee, chewed some tobacco, had a cigarette, and got up to the plate and hit. I played every game high. I was addicted to anything you could possibly be addicted to. I played outfield sometimes where it looked like the stars were falling from the sky." - describing his pre-game ritual before the 1975 World Series
