On this week's edition of the podcast, we talk about double plays, baseball songs, Coors Field, Kenta Maeda, and a lot more, reacting to the Dodgers' 4-2 road trip.
This week's Play Index question referenced Eric's favorite movie:
@truebluela Play index question: every Dodger game completed in the exact same time length as the runtime of UHF.— Cal Crawford (@eatdirt) April 23, 2016
The running time for the cinematic masterpiece UHF was 97 minutes, and since the Dodgers moved to Los Angeles in 1958 there have been three such games, lasting exactly that length. The last one was Sept. 28, 1971, a win over the Astros.
Bill Singer won that game, and won two of the three LA Dodgers 97-minute games. The common thread between the three games were Maury Wills at shortstop and Willie Davis in center field.
Feel free to send us suggestions for future Play Index searches. Keep those Dodgers related, but any other questions can delve into any topics. Send all to firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact us on Twitter at @truebluela or @jacobburch.
