The Red Sox announced today that Dominic DiMaggio, who had been a seven-time all-star for the team he played on for eleven seasons, died at the age of 92 on Friday.

As everybody must know, his brother was Joe DiMaggio who played for the rival New York Yankees.

Both of them, along with their brother Vinnie, were portrayed in a fake commercial for DiMaggio's On The Wharf seafood restaurant. Seen on SCTV back in 1982, Eugene Levy played Dom (pictured on the right) and Martin Short as Vinnie (on the left). And as "Joltin' Joe"? Special guest star Bill Murray.

The gimmick of the restaurant was that if you could throw one past Joe, you'd get your meal free.
