Go back.... waaaay back in time. I hope it copies over. Yankee fans may not want to watch. Stay safe, stay healthy.
I have an old album from the Pirates 1971 World Series year that has a lot of Bob Prince classics. My favorite: “Score tied 3-3 in the bottom of the 17th. Comes into the wind up. Swung on, driven deep to right field, YOU CAN KISS IT GOODBYE! Aw he cremated that baby, he cremated it out of sight. And the Buccos.......we had ‘em aaaaaaaalll the way.”Last night, the local Pittsburgh sports station showed the complete game 7. The good old days, classic baseball at its finest, the number of great players on both the Pirates and Yankees. Watching the after game interviews with Bob Prince was cool. They also had interviews from 2010 with many of the Pirates who played on the team. Clemente has always been my favorite player. Maz said after the win, he left Forbes Field and went to Schenley Park and sat in his car to get away from all the excitement. The local sportstalk show was discussing it last night and they said there was no official taping or filming of the World Series back then by Major League Baseball and it is believed the film from game 7 was from Bing Crosby's private collection.
.Tonight at 7PM, ATTSports Pittsburgh will air game 7 of the 1979 World Series. I remember working afternoon shift in the mill the week of the World Series that year, there was only a couple tv's in the entire factory and both were locked up in conference or manager's rooms. We had a fellow worker pick a lock to the conference room and we went in and watched the games. The plant manager heard about it and he was a big supporter of local baseball, so he gave us a minor talking to, the whole time basically smiling and saying he would of probably did something similar. The good old days.
