Padres in Television and Movies
I was trying to think of which Padres have had the biggest career in Hollywood. No folks I'm not talking about the guys who played for the Hollywood Stars of yesteryear.
During my daily meditation on the Padres, I was thinking about Wally Joyner's appearence in "Little Big League". Was this the greatest Padres moment on the big screen?
Here are links to other Noteable Padres resume's on IMDB.
- Baseball's Hall of Fame Broadcaster Jerry Coleman was in 61*.
- Steve Garvey was on the Gong Show
- Matt Vasgersian always bragged about being in some of his Dad's TV shows, but they aren't listed here.
- Dave Winfield was on "Married with Children"
- John Kruk actually had a real part
- Ozzie Smith was on "The Simpsons"
I thought Ted Leitner woulda been on "Simon and Simon" way back in the day, but I guess not.
I can't think of anybody else to check.
* Billy Crystal sucks.
