In the mid-1950s a journeyman major leaguer named Don Rudolph attracted more media attention because of his wife than his pitching skills.
During much of the the period that he was bouncing up and down between the big leagues and the minors, Rudolph was married to a stripper whose stage name was Patti Waggin.
