I would not have guessed he was born before Uecker, but here we are.

Remember: the Brewers never panic like you do.

He was one of those guys where if he was doing an improv scene everyone on the cast would stop and watch. Just a terrific comedic actor. This is one of my faves (of many):


"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

One of the most effortless comedic actors ever for sure.

Pretty sure its only available on YouTube at this point, but even before Fred kind of broke through in Guffman & Best in Show, he was absolutely hilarious in the Cinemax series History of White People in America playing the hapless father of a stereotical suburban 80s family.
