Next Time, Go by Thumb (1968)

From The Sporting News, 8/10/1968, page 39:

Waterloo, IA — Catcher Carl[ton] Fisk of the Waterloo (Midwest) Hawks missed the team bus for a trip to Appleton, Wis., so he decided to hitch-hike. He beat the bus there by half an hour.

Sometimes you find real surprises when you’re researching something. This certainly counts.
