The Simpsons In Honor Of Their 25th Anniversary

The Baseball Hall of Fame declared Tuesday that it will honor the 25th anniversary of "Homer at the Bat" on May 27 with a discussion featuring the show's makers plus Hall of Famers Wade Boggs and Ozzie Smith, who both emerged in the episode.

Mr. Burns hires a gang of MLB players to trifling jobs at the nuclear plant, connecting them as ringers of a loser company softball team. Boggs, the Smith, Roger Clemens, Ken Griffey Jr., Steve Sax, Jose Canseco, Don Mattingly, Darryl Strawberry, and Mike Scioscia all who voiced-over the episode, and all fall victim to some sort of funny malady, forcing the team to field Homer and the other plant employees as players.

The third-season episode, which was aired Feb. 20, 1992, was also distinguished not only for its guest-star roster but also because it has beaten NBC's "The Cosby Show" in the ratings for the first time. It also recorded higher TV viewership than that night's airing of the Albertville Winter Olympics on CBS.

As detailed in a pretty tremendous 2012 history by Deadspin's Erik Malinowski, the expression was one of the more tough ones for producers to put together given that the ballplayers were recorded discretely over a long period of time when their teams rocked through Los Angeles.

In addition, some of the players like Smith, and Sax were easier to work with than others. Canseco's wife necessitated that his story line - about a "Bull Durham"- ensure an affair with Mrs. Krabappel - be rewritten, while Griffey had trouble taking the tinges of lines such as "there's a party in my mouth and everyone's invited." I guess it'll go down in history."
