People wrongly assume that drama with athletes only started when TMZ started reporting on it. Drama has always existed, just the media didn’t report on it and if they did by the time you got the information it was dated.
If someone is arrested,we have the information immediately, back in the 70s might take days, if ever for that information to come to light.
Can you imagine if a story like Mike Kekich happened today? It would be talked about for months non stop. Short version Kekich and teammate Fritz Peterson decided to do an actual wife swap.
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon want to do a movie about it called “The Trade” and Kekich is freaking out.
Former Yankee Mike Kekich is desperate to block Ben Affleck and Matt Damon’s movie “The Trade,” based on the huge scandal when he and fellow pitcher Fritz Peterson swapped wives in the 1970s.
A source tells us, “Kekich is panic-stricken. He has moved away and has a new identity. He is freaked out that those working on the movie found out where he is. He isn’t too keen on having the scandal dredged up again after all this time.
The amazing drama started in 1972 after the two hurlers, old friends, joked about swapping wives. They followed through on it, although word didn’t get out until the spring of ’73. Marilyn Peterson moved in with Kekich, but it didn’t last. Susanne Kekich and Fritz are still married and live in New Jersey and Colorado. Kekich reportedly remarried and had another daughter.
Now that is pimpin, pimpin.
This could only happen on the Yankees right?
I bet Reggie Jackson slept with both of the women, but I digress.
