On Sunday, July 9th as a lead-in to the 2017 All-Star game, BUZZR will be airing a selection of vintage game show episodes featuring some of the biggest names in MLB history. The network will be airing a series of episodes of Family Feud from 1988 featuring the Oakland A’s taking on the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The episodes were shot following the two teams facing off in an epic World Series earlier that year. Game 1 of the series included a come from behind, walk-off home run by Kirk Gibson off of Dennis Eckersley (who is featured in our Feud episodes).
In addition to Eckersley, our Family Feud episodes also include A’s pitchers, Dave Stewart, Bob Welch and Rick Honeycutt, all who previously pitched for the Dodgers. Now that’s a feud! Dodgers players featured include Alejandro Pena, Todd Maulding, Dave Anderson, Rick Dempsey and Mike Davis.
