Whitey Ford is a former Major League Baseball pitcher.


Marge arranges "Free Pretzel Day" at the Springfield Isotopes baseball stadium. Before the crowd has a chance to consume their complimentary pretzel, it is announced that Mr. Burns has won a 1997 Pontiac Astro Wagon in the day's give-away competition. The supporters react angrily to the news and bombard the field with the pretzels, knocking out Whitey Ford in the process. After that Bart tries to cheer Marge up by telling her that she can't buy publicity like that, as thousands and thousands of people saw her pretzels injuring Whitey Ford. Homer then says to her that she can call them "Whitey-Whackers".[1] When Lisa started to coach the Springfield Isotots, Nelson said they should look on him as their "Whitey Ford".[2]

He is also one of the many people on "Ned's List of Laudable Lefties".[3]
