    Will Torre Get His Rule Change He First Advocated in 1975 -- the DODB?

    In 1975, Joe Garagiola asked Joe Torre what rule change he wanted to see, and he said that the baseball should adopt the DODB -- designate on-deck batter.

    Found the 1975 All-Star Game on YouTube and was watching the beginning and Garagiola did this pregame bit with Torre on being a good on-deck hitter. It was hilarious -- even more now that you know what he went on to do as a manager.

    Here's the link. It starts near the beginning -- after a commercial and ends around the 12-minute mark.
