Kingman a "Goldpanner" in Alaska
BY JERRY JENKINS

It is common knowledge that Dave Kingman, Prospect High School's ace hurler and basketball star of last Year, went "someplace in Alaska to play ball." Many wonder where in Alaska you can play ball, and why anyone would want to go there and play when there are so many good leagues closer to home.

Kingman attended the University of Southern California during the spring and negotiated with the California Angels and the Baltimore Orioles.

THE "SOMETHING special" that lured Kingman from the West Coast was a team called the Pan Alaska Goldpanners. In 1960 the team was formed under the sponsorship of Pan Alaska, Inc., a Fairbanks sporting goods store owned and operated by H, A. (Red) Boucher and his wife. more...

"He was scary wild," said (Stan) Zaborac. "He'd throw in the nineties.  He'd just rare back and throw." (Diamonds in the Rough, 28)

Lasorda goes on Dave Kingman tirade

June 4, 1976 - After a game in which Dave Kingman hit three home runs to beat the Dodgers, Tommy Lasorda was asked by Associated Press radio stringer Paul Olden what he thought of Kingman's performance. The rest is history:

Reporter: Can you give us just a few basic comments about your feelings on the game?

Lasorda: Well, naturally I feel bad about losing a ball game like that, there's no way you should lose that ball game. An', it, uh, just doesn't make sense.

R: What's your opinion of Kingman's performance?

TL: What's my opinion of Kingman's performance!? What the BLEEP do you think is my opinion of it? I think it was BLEEPING BLEEP. Put that in, I don't BLEEP. Opinion of his performance!!? BLEEP, he beat us with three BLEEPING home runs! What the BLEEP do you mean, "What is my opinion of his performance?" How could you ask me a question like that, "What is my opinion of his performance?" BLEEP, he hit three home runs! BLEEP. I'm BLEEPING pissed off to lose that BLEEPING game. And you ask me my opinion of his performance! BLEEP. That's a tough question to ask me, isn't it? "What is my opinion of his performance?"

R: Yes, it is. I asked it, and you gave me an answer...

TL: Well, I didn't give you a good answer because I'm mad, but I mean...

R: Well, it wasn't a good question...

TL: That's a tough question to ask me right now, "What is my opinion of his performance." I mean, you want me to tell you what my opinion of his performance is...

R: You just did...

TL: That's right. BLEEP. Guy hits three home runs against us. BLEEP.

UNEDITED (You've been warned):

What's my opinion of Kingman's performance!? What the fuck do you think is my opinion of it? I think it was FUCKING HORSESHIT. Put that in, I don't fucking care. Opinion of his performance!!? Jesus Christ, he beat us with three fucking home runs! What the fuck do you mean, 'What is my opinion of his performance?' How could you ask me a question like that, 'What is my opinion of his performance?' Shit, he hit three home runs! Fuck. I'm fucking pissed off to lose the fucking game. And you ask me my opinion of his performance! Shit. That's a tough question to ask me, isn't it? 'What is my opinion of his performance?'"
