Same with Jeff Kent. Though I remember him playing, I wouldn't recognize his face outside of baseball.
My DH and I knew exactly who she was. We're in our early to mid-50's and I watched every episode during it's first run. It's not just the age of the show, but the fact that it wasn't shown in syndication the way other shows have been.
Also, there were more than 2 people who knew. Skupin , Denise, Penner, Jeff Kent all knew from what I remember seeing. It was mainly the players under 35 who had no clue.
