I am looking for the name of a famous prankster, who was active perhaps in the 70s and 80s. Here is what I remember. He would dress up in a New York Yankees uniform and try to sneak into the annual team photo. I believe he was successful twice.

He would also pose as different people to appear on TV. Once he convinced a morning show that he was businessman whose business would send armed guards to the homes of overweight clients to guard their refrigerators. After scamming the same morning show twice he publicly revealed the con and was invited to come on the show as himself. He sent an impostor, who appeared on the air.
The above facts are half-remembered from long ago, and Google isn't doing it for me. I thought it might be Barry Bremen
I was thinking of, but cannot find either of the above exploits in the articles about him.
