    Tim McCarver's wife has to be crazy to be able to put up with him.

    Catcher's wife... Lynne Austin, the first Mrs. Darren Daulton, is a decent candidate. Former Playboy Playmate, who was one of the first Hooters girls. One year she was on a Hooters billboard outside the Phillies' spring training facility in Clearwater and he took all kinds of shit from his teammates. Their divorce was pretty nasty.

    It's tough to beat Mrs. Sandberg for the 2B spot, but one of my favorite baseball-wife stories involves Mrs. Tommy Herr. Years ago I was covering a local minor-league team, and one of the coaches was a guy who'd played for the Cardinals in the '80s.

    According to him, one of those years when Tito Landrum was in St. Louis, he needed a place to stay, and Herr offered to let him bunk in his guest room. Well, about that time, Mrs. Herr got pregnant. Nine months later, it comes time for Tommy to drive his wife to the hospital. They go into the delivery room, and pretty soon the doctor congratulates the couple on a new baby boy. Which happened to have a much darker complexion than either Tommy or his wife. Tommy was less than pleased.

    I've heard other versions of this bandied about, but that's the way my guy told it. What always got me about the story was the gamble Mrs. Herr made, not wanting to spill the beans to Tommy in hopes the baby would be his. And boy, what a scene that delivery room must've been.

    Tito was traded back to Baltimore the next day.
