Mr. Bradys Says… Something About Being Dizzy

Dizzy’s Diner, an anchor of Busch Stadium’s concession trade, is rumored by One Cool Guy Tony, to be named for Dizzy Dean, a pitcher for the St Louis Cardinals in the 1930s.

Remembered as the Ace of the Gashouse Gang, Dean once suffered a concussion when he threw himself in the path of a ball during the World Series against the Detroit Tigers to avoid a double play.

Dean also loved to boost and often made bets with the press, once betting that he could strike out Vince DiMaggio, the older brother of Dom and Joe DiMaggio, four times in one game.  After three strike outs DiMaggio hit a popup behind the plate.  Dean screamed at his catcher to drop it, and Dean fanned DiMaggio, winning the bet.

This episode of Mr Brady dropping some knowledge on you is brought to you bya view of the Purina building, not one of Mr. Brady’s favorites, but there’s a view of their building from my seat.
