Rick Dempsey Biography
Rick Dempsey was born September 13, 1949 in Fayetteville, Tennessee and is a former catcher in Major League Baseball who played from 1969 to 1992, best known for his years with the Baltimore Orioles. He also played for the Minnesota Twins, New York Yankees, Cleveland Indians, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Milwaukee Brewers.
His sense of humor during his playing career was renowned, and he was famous for his rain delay theatre performances, in which he emerged from the dugout in stockinged feet onto the tarpaulin covering the infield during a rain delay and pantomimed hitting an inside the park home run, climaxed by his sliding into home plate on his belly on the wet tarp, all to the raucous delight of the soggy fans. He sometimes did this while wearing a pair of underpants over his uniform, making fun of teammate Jim Palmer's famous advertisements for Jockey brand briefs.
Dempsey, who came to the Orioles as part of a 10-player trade with the Yankees in 1976, was awarded the World Series MVP Award in 1983, when the Orioles defeated the Philadelphia Phillies four games to one.
