10 things fans yelled at Eddie Whitson while he warmed up Sept. 23, 1989:
10) "Hey, Eddie, you delivered that package to the neighbor's?"
9) "It's nice you wore a nondescript brown jacket to hide your coveralls."
8) "Anybody ever tell you that you dress like Pete Vuckovich?"

5) "Hey, the Padres' owner wanted me to tell you thanks for dressing up for the occasion."
4) "I can't believe your sideburns are made of elementary school chalkboard erasers."
