The Mick Hits One Out on TV

Please indulge me for three minutes and twenty-one seconds. I've told you about how broadcasts used to be - well here's a prime example. Neil Best posted this at Watchdog, and it's worth a look. In case you need to know, it's Mel Allen on the call - working solo on NBC (Red Barber likely worked the first half of the game, but they didn't share the booth).

So look closely - no "Fox Box", no scroll, no insane promotions for "Frank TV", no embedded logo - just a black and white picture and only a few camera angles. It's gorgeous.
