The Brooklyn Dodgers return to Flatbush by train from spring training in the late 1940s, and they are greeted by a mob of fans -- and a live radio announcer who grabs player after player for quick "interviews."
Each is asked how the team will fare in the coming season, and each answers with the expected optimism. This is our year. Going to win the pennant.
"And here's Pistol Pete Reiser," exclaims the radio host as the oft-injured star centerfielder gets off the train. "Pete, where do you think you'll finish the season?"
Reiser replies: "Peck Memorial Hospital."
