A lot of folks seem to think Batman died yesterday. Adam West wanted you to remember he was an actor, not a comic book character.— Mark Evanier (@evanier) June 11, 2017
nut job Jimmy Piersall, shuffled off this mortal coil, perhaps backwards:
It's entirely possible that going nuts was the best thing that happenedNoted: Jimmy Piersall, a former Angel who played 17 seasons in the big leagues, died at age 87. He wrote in his 1955 book, “Fear Strikes Out,” about playing with mental illness. He was portrayed by Anthony Perkins in a 1957 movie of the same name. "Probably the best thing that happened to me was going nuts," Piersall wrote in a second book. He once circled the bases backward after a home run. Kinda freaked people out. New York Times obituary, Boston Globe, Red Sox release
to this reporter as well.
Tony Perkins as Jim Piersall:Also recently, at the ripe old of 89, Roger Moore, most remembered in these quarters as Simon Templar in The Saint.
