  1. FYI – Clemente was 38 (born Aug. 1934) when he died.

  2. I still think Dirk Hayhurst deserves an HBO series rather than a movie…

    I also think I nominated Dummy Hoy, although on second thought a deaf guy (and his deaf wife – iirc their doorbell was a bowling ball) might make for a pretty slow-moving screenplay.

  3. Eddie Gaedel would be a short film.

  4. RA Dickey’s life would make for an incredible movie.
    Just sayin’.

  5. Note: Dummy Hoy has a documentary in his honor, titled “I Can See The Crowd Roar.”

    I voted Clemente, but if someone were to do a Doc Gooden biopic in a form similar to that of the one-man tour de force put on by Tom Hardy in Bronson, I would pay serious money to see it come to fruition.

  7. The fact that Dick Allen is (curently) 6th in a vote on this site shows how strong the rest of the field is.

  8. I’m surprised no one nominated Glenn Burke.

  9. Still hopeful round 2 will feature my suggestion of “a realtime Danny-Boyle-directed vision of Dock Ellis’s no-hitter day on LSD”
