Wilbur Snapp, a ballpark organist who was ejected during a game in 1985, died on Sept. 6, 2003. He was 83.
In 1985, after seeing what he thought was a bad call at the plate by a young umpire, Snapp, the organist for the Clearwater Phillies, started to play "Three Blind Mice."
The umpire pointed up to Snapp and made the motion to throw him out of the game.
The ejection led to a number of interviews and articles on Snapp including mentions on the Today show and in Paul Harvey's radio show. Whenever he was asked for his autograph, he signed it, "Wilbur Snapp, Three Blind Mice organist."
Snapp was a World War II veteran of the Army Air Forces.
