Mitch "Wild Thing" Williams

Chicago Cubs reliever Mitch Williams (who surrendered a World Series-losing home run, as a Philly, in 1993) was famed for throwing a daunting but reckless fastball which often missed the plate. One day in 1989, Williams, to the great amusement of knowing Wrigley Field fans, stormed out of the bullpen to the Chip Taylor-penned/Troggs-popularized garage-rock classic "Wild Thing"!

[That same year, Charlie Sheen's character (Ricky Vaughn) did the same thing in Major League.]
