A visit to the mound

Posted at 9:19 AM on August 2, 2005 by Ben Tesch

The Seattle Times lists 10 great moments in "chatting" history, some great stories about interesting mound visits.

When Dodgers pitcher Jerry Reuss pleaded to stay in a tight game, manager Tommy Lasorda told him he'd do the Democratic thing and take a vote. Lasorda wanted to yank him. Reuss voted to stay, of course, figuring that with catcher Steve Yeager on his side, he had it made.
When queried by the manager, however, Yeager told Lasorda, "Shoot, I would have taken him out two innings ago."
