Plot:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mighty_Casey

..."Mouth" McGarry (Jack Warden), the manager of a broken-down baseball team called the Hoboken Zephyrs on its last legs, allows a robot named Casey to play on his team. Casey has the ability to throw super-fast balls that cannot be hit.
Eventually, after Casey is beaned by a ball and given a physical examination, the National League finds out and rules that Casey must be taken off the team because he is not human. Casey's inventor, Dr. Stillman (Abraham Sofaer), gives him an artificial heart to have him classified as human.

But with a heart, Casey now has human emotions. He refuses to throw his fast balls anymore, saying that he feels empathy with the batter and does not want to ruin the batter's career by striking him out. With the team sure to fold soon, Dr. Stillman gives McGarry Casey's blueprints as a souvenir. Glancing at them, McGarry suddenly has a brilliant idea, as he runs off after Dr. Stillman to tell him his idea. Rumors later surface intimating that McGarry has used the blueprints to build a world-champion team of Casey robots.

While I wouldn't realistically consider this guy a "celebrity,"--a minor b-actor at best-- the most recent "celeb" of note to die in prison is Aaron Hernandez, who committed suicide while serving life in prison for murder (NT).Hernandez. 27, died April 19, 2017Wednesday, August 28, 02:10:46pm
