On another slightly more serious note:
Rick Monday played 19 seasons in the big leagues, made two All-Star squads, appeared in the World Series two times and was a member of the Dodgers' 1981 World Series championship team. He was the first player selected in the first Draft in June 1965.
And Monday is best known for saving an American flag from being burned by two protesters on the outfield grass during a game at Dodger Stadium 40 years ago on Monday.
