Episode Info

Episode Info:

Born in Ozanna, Poland, at the start of the Third Reich, Moe Drabowsky escaped from Hitler and came to America as a toddler. He embraced life in America, becoming first the hardest-throwing young prospect in baseball, then its most notorious prankster. And in 1966, after arm injuries had caused everyone to write him off for good, he resurrected his career and authored the most spectacular relief pitching performance in World Series history.
