“The story you are about to see is true” and “Just the facts, ma’am” are two phrases which became so popular – they established the realistic tone of this early police drama. Starring Joe Webb, this cop show set the standard and helped improve the public’s perception of police departments nationwide.

Mickey Owen’s Passed Ball maybe cost the Brooklyn Dodgers the Series in 1941
On October 5, 1941, the Brooklyn Dodgers led the NY Yankees 4-3 and were one out from winning Game 4 and tying the World Series at 2 games apiece. Yankee batter Tommy Henrich swung and missed for strike three, but the 3rd strike got passed Dodger catcher Mickey Owen, allowing Henrich to reach first base. The Yankees then rallied for 4 runs to win the game and take a 3-1 lead in the Series. The Yankees would win the World Series the next day. Ironically, Mickey Owen had set a record earlier in the year for consecutive fielding chances by a catcher without committing an error.
