RIP James Gammon Aka Lou Brown

I’m a little late reporting this, but James Gammon, aka Lou Brown from Major League, passed away last week:

“Major League,” the 1989 comedy by David S. Ward that documented a rag-tag bunch of fictitious Cleveland Indians, was undoubtedly on heavy rotation in DVD players around the country this weekend.

Why? Actor James Gammon, who played the team’s gravel-voiced manager Lou Brown, died at age 70 on Friday.

Most of Brown’s memorable lines can’t be published here, but the longtime manager of the Toledo Mud Hens and — of course — Tire World made simple phrases like “I dunno” “Give ’em the heater” and “Shut up, Dorn!” staples of many a baseball-meets pop culture soundtrack.

If you haven’t seen Major League, rush to your local movie depot and rent it immediately. James Gammon makes Gandhi look like a pedophile. See below for some oley bullshit:
