An eerie coincidence I think! As a side note, whenever I hear or see Spahn's name, I think of his wind up, along with the poem:

First we'll use Spahn
then we'll use Sain
Then an off day
followed by rain
Back will come Spahn
followed by Sain
And followed
we hope
by two days of rain.

They never could get Burdette and Buhl in there.

In Underworld which of course starts with the Thomson homer, Don Delillo does a riff on the number 13 (Branca's jersey) that's something like that but I can't remember the details other than that the Dodgers blew a 13 game lead, the date 10/3 added to 13, and there was more.
