Perhaps no story in Sports Illustrated's first six decades engendered the response of "The Curious Case Of Sidd Finch." The piece, by longtime SI contributor George Plimpton, told the tale of a young man who could throw a baseball 168 mph yet was as mysterious off the field as he was hard to believe on it. The story appeared in the April 1, 1985 issue, and neither the date nor the strangely worded subhead ("He's a pitcher, part yogi and part recluse. Impressively liberated from our opulent lifestyle, Sidd's deciding about yoga -- and his future in baseball"), the first letters of which spelled out "Happy April Fool's Day," clued readers into the fact that it was all a hoax. Here are some of the pictures that accompanied the original SI story, as well as some that were never published.
