OT: The Oilers Baseball Game
 
Winter was talking about a celebrity baseball game that involved the Oilers in the 80's. Here is a picture from that game (I'm pretty sure it's the same one).

I posted the picture in another thread and Soundwave suggested that this deserves its own thread...

Now the question is - who are the players in the picture? I know who they all are - do you?

Defiantly not for use on the cover of GQ magazine.

And I know only 9 of those guys.

Gretz, Lowe, Lumley, Fuhr, Habshied, Sammy, Coffey, Hunter, Gregg.

Could be...same kind of baby face.

Who's the guy to the right of Lowe? Looks European...maybe Rexi?

Zach and Slater 07-02-2008 10:25 PM

Man DSF, you're all about the rear.....what? Too far? :sarcasm:

Anyways, what I want to know is where is the love....well not love....but like....well, not like...how about props? Where are the props for Rich Winter??? I'm sure most of you either listened to or heard his interveiw with Bob today at 5. Sounds like Katz is a miracle worker, that he and Lowe are back on the same page, and that Winter is going to let his clients know just how great of a place Edmonton is to play hockey (like he SHOULD have been doing in the first place!) Sounds like Katz and the brass has this agent (this big time agent with big time clients) convinced the Oilers are serious about contending year in and year out.

I was thinking hagman. Dunno

All I know is none of those guys saw the inside of a weight room.

I could see him being a fireballer on the mound...maybe in the closer role

Lowetide should get a kick out of this, he loves baseball.

He isnt in the pic, dont know if he played.

I would kill for one of those shirts/jerseys...I bet none exist. I would be killed if my wife seen me wear one of those hats.

Canadian Game 07-02-2008 10:37 PM

What year would this picture have been taken? This is a great pic!

The Smytty Clapper 07-02-2008 10:37 PM

This stuff is gold, too bad is was about 5 years before I was born haha.

420ilerBuzz* 07-02-2008 10:40 PM

If I recall correctly, it was taken in the summer of '83.

I'm not finding him either.

Replacement 07-02-2008 11:15 PM

lol several of those guys look like Jamie Farr(Corporal Klinger) in fact one of them is..

I can make out(in no order) Semenko, Gretz, Lowe, Dave Lumley, Dave Hunter, Coffey, Fuhr, Huddy,
a bunch of guys that look like Cowboy Bill Flett;)(but probably aren't)

For the younger crowd shavers weren't invented yet back then..

Messier, who was busy on tour with the Rolling Stones wasn't in the picture..;)

I think you're correct on that one. Also next to Lowe that could be a bad shot of Risto Siltanen.


Oh boy, talk about a thread that shows your age!

Gunner8811 07-02-2008 11:22 PM

I'll take a shot at this:

back row: 2guys, Coffey, Gary Larivierre, Semenko, Rick the Stick, Tom Rolston, Hunter, Habsheid, some guy.
Front row: Some guy, Huddy, Gretzky, Lowe, Tuele, Lumley, Gregg, Fuhr.

I'll fill in the rest later if people become stumped. You're right about Tuele too.

I think you're right on Tom Rolston and Habscheid which nobody got yet. Whos Rick the stick? Chartraw?

Some other uglies on that team were(not sure if they're in the picture) Don Jackson, Willy Lindstrom, Pat Hughes, pat Conacher, Kevin Mclelland, Ray Cote, John Blum.

He was the visiting teams stick boy for years. Not sure if its him but I worked with him at The Brick also and it sure looks like him.
I remember seeing some of these shirts in classic auctions a while back but I'm not sure what they went for.
I'm almost positive on the Gary Larivierre to.

Sorry, it's not him. Good job on the rest though.
