Sketch of the Day Theme: celebration
Walla Walla, 1978. Alvin Dreistein ends his dubious record of 49 straight strikeouts in spectacular fashion: Game 7, Little League world series, 9th inning, tied game, based loaded. On a 3-2 count, the opposing pitcher hits Alvin in the face, bringing the winning run home. Alvin and his teammates celebrated his stroke of good fortune.
