  3. 3:22 – Dan Schatzeder

  4. 2:54 — #17 is probably Gene Richards, #8 bounced around a little but Joe Pittman (82-83) seems a little more likely than Barry Evans (81) because the name on the back looks longer.

    3:18 — Sarge wore #34 for the Phillies from 81-83. I’d at least go with “probably” for that one.

  5. My money is on Frank Wills for 0:54.

  6. The cheerleader in the KC Chiefs uni at 0:49 just before Tug McGraw is Krazy George.

    I think the A’s player at 0:55 is Ray Burris.

  7. At 3:13, is Roger Craig scoring a touchdown in Super Bowl XIX.

  8. 2:54 It’s Richards and Barry Evans. Joe Pittman is black like Frank White, not white like Frank Black.

  9. Pretty sure that’s Kevin Saucier, who was quite the flake.

  10. I feel like I am responsible for this post. Len Matuszek is still my best guess for the aforementioned man.

  11. 2:43 Greg Luzinski and Larry Bowa
    3:03 Bucky Dent and Jerry Mumphrey
    3:30 Rollie Fingers, Ted Simmons, and Sal Bando

    Sadly, I look at the split-second clip of the Lakers locker room celebration at 3:36 and utter “Chuck Nevitt”.

  12. Perhaps some third person, then? I’d agree about the skin color point, but that name on his jersey is WAY longer than five characters — it’s almost shoulder-to-shoulder.

  13. You are right. It is a utility infielder named Fernando Gonzalez that played for them in 1978 and 1979. His 1979 Topps card has him wearing #8 in an MLB ballpark, so Baseball Reference has his uni number wrong. “Gonzalez” was the name that I came up with when I zoomed in on the video so that’s how I figured it out. Besides that facial-hairwise the guy on the video looks much more like Gonzalez than Barry Evans.

    That creates a second problem in that is #17 Oscar Gamble in 1978 or Gene Richards in 1979? The glove is on the left hand, so it is the right-handed thrower Gamble. Nameplate-wise it also looks more like Gamble than Richards. Based on the game logs, the play in question would have been scored a single by either Ellis Valentine or Gary Carter in the 8th inning on June 6, 1978 at Montreal.

    So in short, the correct answer should be Fernando Gonzalez and Oscar Gamble.

  14. The New Orleans Saints player at the 1:05 mark should be cornerback Jonnie Poe. At the 2:52 mark Jon Sundvold is shooting a jumper. Ted Simmons is the catcher jumping into the pitcher’s arms at the 3:30 mark
