In honor of actor Andy Garcia and his (unintentionally) hilarious reaction to Sofia (Mary Corleone) Coppola's death scene in "The Godfather, Part III."

Game notes: Yankee Stadium was jam-packed for the start of this series between the Saints and the Sinners, as announcer Bob Costas called it just before having an orgasm and fainting. A who's who of dead legends turned out for the game, including Charles Comiskey, Jacob Ruppert, Kenesaw Mountain Landis. Dead celebs at the game included John Barrymore, Al Jolson and Buddy Rogers, Jr.. Landis tried to put a stop to the game, but was unable to, as he is dead and no longer has power over baseball. Current commish Bud Selig was going to throw out the first pitch, but was unable to after he strained his arm patting himself on the back for thinking up the idea for the series.

Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Shoeless Joe Jackson and Buck Weaver were all given standing ovations by the crowd. Comiskey, Landis, Chick Gandil and Swede Risberg were all loudly booed. Gandil responded by looking evil.

One game highlight came in the top of the 5th, when Shoeless Joe Jackson ripped an RBI double to right field past the outstretched glove of Ruth. Jackson went 3-for-4 with a walk and an RBI. Both Ruth and Gehrig went 0-for-3 with a walk apiece.
