Brotherly love! David Cassidy’s Partridge Family costar Danny Bonaduce has lent his support in the wake of his TV sibling’s dementia diagnosis. “David Cassidy once had a bigger fan club than Elvis & the Beatles,” he wrote. “If you’re a fan, now is a great time to send him your love & best wishes.”

As Us Weekly confirmed with Cassidy’s rep, the legendary 66-year-old actor and musician is battling dementia.

The star revealed the devastating news to People on February 20, after he slurred his words, forgot his lyrics and almost fell off the stage during a performance in California on Saturday.

“I was in denial, but part of me always knew this was coming,” he told the magazine, adding that his grandfather and mother both battled dementia.

Cassidy told the audience at the show, that he was retiring and many fans feared the teen idol, who has had many stints in rehab and a number of DUI’s, was drunk during the show.

But Cassidy revealed the truth to People adding that he was retiring to focus on his health.

MLB History: Commissioner Landis Bans Boxing for Current Players

Before MLB salaries exploded, baseball players would need to work other jobs to make ends meet. While most would work other mundane jobs, a few would dabble in other sports. On this day in 1930, Commssioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis banned players from boxing.

In the early days of baseball, there are quite a few stories of MLB players working other jobs. Even the stars, such Yogi Berra and Phil Rizzuto, worked in department stores or other assorted locations. There were also a few that tried their hands at other sports, and even excelled, like Dave DeBusschere, who became a Hall of Fame player in the NBA.

Of course, some players would gravitate towards other sports or professions that would be seemingly hazardous. One of those was Chicago White Sox first baseman Art Shires, a decent hitting player who also made his mark on the field with his fists, having punched out his manager, Lena Blackburn, and two hotel detectives at the end of the 1929 season.

By Vikram Murthi @fauxbeatpoet

The funniest scene of the episode by far is when Tandy explains the six degrees of separation between Danny Bonaduce, better known as Danny Patridge on The Partridge Family, and Katie Couric: “Danny Partridge was in The Partridge Family, and he then went on to be in a movie called The Jerk Theory, which was written and directed by Scott S. Anderson, who was acting in the movie Midway to Heaven, which of course starred Kirby Heyborne, who was in a video short called “I Want My Hat Back,” with Galen Fott, who did a small part in a show Nashville with Katie Couric.” This is all true by the way. Look it up.

David Cassidy wore his medical alert bracelet on his sleeve Friday night, going bananas on a fan who ignored his considerable ailments just to get a little video.

The 66-year-old former Partridge Family star was performing at Hudson Valley Theater in Peekskill, NY when a fan shined a cellphone light smack into his cornea.

You gotta watch ... David somehow thinks people know he's had 5 eye surgeries and counting, and issues an ultimatum ... eject the dude or he won't continue.
