Old stuff best remembered Hall of Fame quarterback Johnny Unitas donated more than 200 awards and other memorabilia to the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum in Baltimore. The items included his 1967 NFL MVP award, his single-bar helmet, an autographed football commemorating his last touchdown pass with the Baltimore Colts and game film of him in high school. "One of the main reasons this stuff is here is because I didn't have a place to put it," United said with a laugh. The museum, located in the house where Babe Ruth was born, features photos of Ruth, bats he used and a profile of his career.
...and old stuff that best be forgotten
Fran Blinebury of the Houston Chronicle wrote that a few reporters were watching the Astros take infield practice last week when manager Jimy Williams suggested they change seats. "We're fine," one said. "What could happen?" Williams reached into his mouth and came out with a partial plate of dentures "that left him looking like a jack-o'-lantern who had just lost a head-on collision with a rhinoceros." After the shock wore off, there was laughter all around.
