The 20/20 interview has come and gone thankfully.

Not sure what to think other than the next possible Major League movie could end up being like stealing Jobu‘s rum … very bad.

Or, of course, it could be great.

Here are a few headlines about the next film … I’ll call it Major League 4 for sanity’s sake.

The greatest (fake) Pedro Cerrano baseball card ever!

Sweet, ain’t it?

I whipped it up on my printer and might send some out to a few lucky fans.

Roger Dorn threw out the first pitch today in Cleveland, which also happens to be the 12th anniversary of Major League: Back To The Minors‘ theatrical release.

Harry Doyle said his pitch was juuuuuuust a bit outside, but personally I think his vision is getting bad.

It’s worth noting that Dorn is one of only four Major Leaguers to appear in all three films — him, coach Duke Temple, Pedro Cerrano and Doyle.

Some rare behind-the-scenes footage from Major League is here

Well, here’s something you don’t see everyday. It’s a brief behind-the-scenes clip promoting Major League before it came to VHS — remember that?

Check it out. I was surprised to find it, myself. Looks like my team still has quite a few fans out there.



Do you have these magazines? I need copies …

For all of the things I saved through the years, I never did latch onto copies of People and Sports Illustrated where my guys appeared on the covers.

“Wild Thing” appeared on the Sept. 18, 1988, cover of People, while several of us appeared on a SI cover that fall, too.

Have one? E-mail me…

Inside Pedro Cerrano’s baseball card collection

UPDATE: The mystery card is definitely a San Francisco Giant and it’s definitely not a standard-sized card.

For a voodoo warrior who has problems getting along with his teammates, Pedro Cerrano sure does show a soft spot for baseball greats and their baseball cards showing in his locker doesn’t he?

From left just above Jobu, that’s a 1984 Donruss Eddie Murray Diamond Kings card, a 1968 Topps Game Roberto Clemente, a mystery card, a 1971 Topps Willie McCovey, a 1954 Topps Hank Aaron rookie card and a 1952 Topps Jackie Robinson.

Anyone have any ideas on the mystery card? My leading guess is that it might be a 1957 Topps Clemente. I’m admittedly not sure, though, as it also looks like it could be a Willie Mays or Monte Irvin mug. Plus, the card looks like it could be narrower like a 1968 Topps 3D card or a Kellogg’s card, but I can’t match it anywhere.

Did you know … Fleer pulled Pedro Cerrano’s baseball card from its 1989 set while fixing the Billy Ripken FF error?

Did you know Fleer pulled this card from its 1989 baseball card set while fixing the Billy Ripken error?

Pedro Cerrano appeared on card No. 402 until someone spotted him and replaced him with Dave Clark. It was a change that was so subtle it didn’t even require a change to the alphabetical order on the checklist.

(We heard that Fleer’s CEO just couldn’t allow the Tribe’s voodoo warrior on a card — he thought it gave off the wrong impression to youngsters. Little did he know what was on the knob of Ripken’s bat. But then that’s all just an urban myth, anyway … right?)
