Simpsons Folder of Fun Addition - Part 8

 If you missed the first post of this series you can go here to catch up.

Don Mattingly. No sideburns, but some flowing hair out the back. Nice.

Okay, I've put this on the back burner long enough. What is the mascot for the Springfield softball team? Is it the Isotopes? For some reason I have that stuck in my head. 

I could see Steinbrenner and Burns having very similar ownership qualities. I just read the Wikipedia page for "Homer at the Bat" and the number of cultural references is pretty astounding!

Three more MLB players to go. Has your favorite shown yet? Or are you still waiting for your guy like PKS?


  1. The Isotopes were the local minor league baseball team; Homer used to dance at their games, and later went on a hunger strike when he learned they were planning to move to Albuquerque. Not the same team. (The real Albuquerque team later changed its name to the Isotopes.) The local hockey team is the Ice-O-Topes.

    I don't think the softball team was ever called anything but the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant softball team.

  2. None of my main PC guys made Burns' roster. But I also collect Canseco, Ozzie Smith, and Griffey... all of which you've already featured.

  3. Sideburns. I feel like there's some pun in there on Mr. Burns.

    You might as well save the best for last!

  4. I thought they were the Isotopes too.

    Bummer for the typo on the back...Ebay 1/1!
