In the late 1970s, ABC had a "Monday Night Baseball" show with Al Michaels, Howard Cosell and Bob Uecker. Michaels told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel recently that they were doing a game in Houston when Uecker chided Cosell for saying something outrageous. Cosell responded: "Ueck, you don't have to get so truculent. You do know what truculent means." Uecker, without missing a beat, said: "Of course, Howard.

It looked like a low line drive streaking over the infieled, but it was still climbing when it clipped the very peak of the roofed upper deck in left and took off for the clouds. Three days later a small boy in Bustleton, on the northeast fringe of town, found a baseball with snow on it.
