Death of a Citizen

Moe Drabowsky, Pitcher and Accomplished Prankster, Dies at 70

During a game at Kansas City in 1966, Drabowsky, then with the Orioles, phoned the Athletics’ bullpen — he knew the number because he pitched for them the year before — and ordered Lew Krausse, his former teammate, to warm up. Krausse did so, presumably figuring that the voice was that of Manager Al Dark. That puzzled the A's starter, Jim Nash, who was pitching a shutout.

Thanks to bellotto for this contribution . . .
