Hat And Ball From Stephen Strasburg’s Debut Are Heading To The Hall of Fame


Jun 11, 2010

WASHINGTON — It took only one start for the Hall of Fame — and David Letterman — to take notice of Stephen Strasburg.

The Washington Nationals said Thursday they are donating to Cooperstown a Strasburg hat and a ball from his 14-strikeout major league debut this week.

Strasburg also taped a Top 10 list of "Little Known Facts About Stephen Strasburg" for Thursday night's broadcast of The Late Show with David Letterman.

Among the highlights:

-No. 5: "Dumb guys think I directed E.T."

-No. 4: "I also scored the winning goal for the Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup finals."

-No. 3: "I blew my signing bonus on laser back hair removal."

Strasburg-mania also is prompting TBS to switch its coverage this Sunday. TBS will now show Washington's game at Cleveland, with Strasburg set to start.

TBS was previously scheduled to show the Phillies-Red Sox game.
