Has it really been 20 years since

Dave Bresnahan

pulled one of the funniest stunts heard of on a baseball field?

Yes, it has.

The Williamsport Crosscutters, the Phillies' single-A affiliate in the New York-Penn League, will commemorate Bresnahan's memorable caper Saturday night at Bowman Field in Williamsport, Pa.

The team will give away Bresnahan bobbleheads, complete with a potato in hand. Bresnahan will be in attendance to help recreate the play that got him in trouble but made everyone laugh, too.

On Aug. 31, 1987, in a late-season game between two dead-end teams, Bresnahan, then a 25-year-old, .149-hitting, double-A backup catcher in the Indians' system, tried to pick off a runner at third - by throwing a potato into left field. When the runner, Reading Phillie Rick Lundblade, ran home on the "overthrow," Bresnahan tagged him out with the actual baseball.

The ruse was quickly sniffed out, and Lundblade was awarded a run. Bresnahan was fined $50 and released the next day.

But 20 years later, his caper still makes us laugh.
