The Hoboken Zephyrs!
Hoboken featured on Twilight Zone in 1960
Seeing that Baseball Season is just around the corner – figured I’d share this “Friday Fun” Video…
During the first season of The Twilight Zone back in 1960 – and episode called “The Mighty Casey” featured “The Hoboken Zephyrs” baseball team.
“The Mighty Casey” Synopsis (for those without video @ work):
“Once upon a time there was a major league baseball team called the Hoboken Zephyrs who, during the last year of their existence, wound up in last place and shortly thereafter wound up in oblivion (411: sound like our property tax problem?)
There’s a rumor, unsubstantiated of course, that a manager named McGarry took them to the West Coast and wound up with several pennants and a couple of world’s championships. This team had a pitching staff that made history. Of course, none of them smiled very much, but it happens to be a fact that they pitched like nothing human. And if you’re interested as to where these gentlemen came from, you might check under ‘B’ for baseball – in the Twilight Zone.”
For those without video at work – Check it out later when you get home (grab some popcorn too!)
