RIP.  

Think I read an article once saying he was a classmate of TV's David Janssen ("The Fugitive") at Fairfax HS. Janssen was an All-City basketball player there.

There was a great  sports radio show in LA on KLAC then KMPC.  1970s to90s. Jim Healy. One of his main sound effects was Sherry laughing.  Became a great sports comedy show when Peterson  &  Kekich traded wives  remember?   About  1975.

That Peterson-Kekich swap didn't work out too well either on or off the field - either of them. Roll Eyes

Didnt Kekich stay for yrs with Peterson's wife ?   Other  one ended soon.
From a 2011 article by a writer named Harold Friend. My favorite part is about the pets!

"In (reporter Maury) Allen’s driveway that July evening, the two Yankees left-handers and their wives discussed exchanging families. After many hours, Fritz took off with Susanne Kekich and Mike left with Marilyn.

At the press conference months after the swap, Kekich explained.

“It was a life swap. We’re not saying we’re right and everyone else who thinks we’re wrong are wrong. It’s just the way we felt.”

Peterson said, “It wasn’t a sex thing. It was not a cheap swap.”

The children and the pets joined the restructured families.

It worked out better for Peterson and Susanne Kekich than for Mike Kekich and Marilyn Peterson.

Kekich and Marilyn broke up, but Peterson, now 70-years-old and Susanne are still together."
