Listening to WCRB last evening, I heard this offer, read by "the voice of Fenway Park": for a donation of $86 you get Ken Burns's baseball documentary.

I can't figure out why $86. It's not the frequency of WGBH or WCRB. And the only connection I can think of between baseball in Boston and the number '86 is one that I would think people would want to forget.
