I prefer to listen to baseball too rather than watch it on TV especially when grilling something on the Bar-B-Q or working in the yard. These would be the handful of classics I'd select...


:radio Don Larsen's perfect game in the '56 World Series
:radio Game 7 of the '68 World Series (Gibson v. Lolich)
:radio the extra game played at the end of the '78 season between the Yankees and the Red Sox.

Alot of these older games dont exist anymore on video. there are a small number of older games on video(KINESCOPE)but not to many. so if want a game lets say from the 1930,s 1940,s 1950, 1960,s you will not have a video of the game. so again what classic old baseball game would you like to listen to again.

Hello all. i just today listened to the 8-31-1957 new york giants at brooklyn dodgers game on audio.the quality is very good considering what they had back in the 1950,s alot of the 1957 brooklyn dodgers games still exist on audio today.thanks for that goes to Mr Pat Rispole who back then taped these games so future generations could here baseball action at some of the calssic ballparks that dont exist anymore, including ebbets field and in 1962 and 1963 the new york mets at the historic polo grounds.he also taped the new york yankees games also.
so what classic game would you all out there want to listen to or listen again to. remmber way back when there was no tv and everyone that was not at the ball game would listen on the radio. LETS hear from everyone, what classic game would you like to hear again Donald

Hello all. i started this thread just to see what reaction i would get from everyone out there. i did not want to start a new poll just to see what old game would be the most popular.and also the older games just dont exist on video or kinescope. so what i want is to hear from everyone what game or games would you want to listen to again or for the first time.is it the 1951 thomson homerun, 1960 world series game 7, 1962 world series, 1968 world series, 1975 world series etc. lets hear from you and go a head and list for more than one if you want to. take care Donald :clapping

Actually, there is no kinescope of NBC's telecast of Don Larsen's perfect game. That telecast is lost forever, unfortunately. The only telecast footage that remains from the 1956 WS is the final kinescope reel from game two, which shows the final 2 innings of a 13-8 Dodger blowout over the Yankees.

The only footage that remains from game five (Larsen's perfecto) is from either newsreels and the WS highlight film.

Game 7 of the 1968 WS is available on an excellent quality kinescope, in its entirety. The TV announcers for that game were Curt Gowdy, Harry Caray, and Tony Kubek.

I don't know if there are kinescopes of the 1978 AL East playoff game or the final game of the 1991 WS. And I doubt that many people would care, since excellent quality videos of these two games are readily available.

The kinescope of don larsens game does exist. i was told that by MR JOHN MILEY of the miley collection that the kinescope of that game exists. but he would not say who has the game. but it still exists

Is it the same guy who also has "kinescopes" of the 1978 AL East playoff game and the 7th game of the 1991 WS?

Tv stations stoped using kinescopes back in the late 1960,s and early 1970,s. the 1978 and 1991 games you are talking about are from video tape not kinescope. Mr john miley has been saving games for alot of years and knows what he is talking about. i have known him for years.besides saving videos of baseball games mr miley has a huge audio collection including the audio of the last brooklyn dodgers game ever in 1957 at connie mack stadium in philadlphia(only audio for this game) And also has the 1934 allstar game on audio from the polo grounds. some of these games are not for sale by him. so i am saying here that he is telling the truth about Don Larsens perfect game exists on kinescope also.

Well, I was just confused because in your reply to MyDogSparty, you wrote:


<<Don Larsen's perfect game in the '56 World Series
Game 7 of the '68 World Series (Gibson v. Lolich)
the extra game played at the end of the '78 season between the Yankees and the Red Sox.
Game 7 of the '91 World Series (Smoltz v. Morris)>>


The 4 games you picked do exist on kinescope including the don larsen 56 world series game. just thought some of you would like to know this.

So you earlier did say that all those games (including the 1978 and '91 games) were on kinescope, which I found hard to believe. By the early 1970s, almost all of the CBC affiliates had become linked up by satellite. So they stopped manufacturing kinescopes for their own purposes. Also, the American Forces Network didn't need kinescopes when consumer level VCRs hit the marketplace in the mid-1970s. And it is from those two sources (CBC and AFN) which is responsible for almost all of the vintage sports telecast kinescopes that still exist today.

So naturally, when you said that the 1978 and '91 games were on kinescope, it sounded to me like you didn't know what you were talking about. And this also put into question your claim that the Don Larsen game was preserved, especially since you did not mention John Miley in your initial post and you made it sound like it was your firsthand knowledge.

Yes, I know who John is. And if its something he's saying, then that puts everything in a different light.

The oldest radio broadcast of a baseball game that still exists as far as i know is a september 20 1934 new york yankees at detroit tigers game. and i think the oldest kinescope of a baseball game is the game 6 and 7 1952 world series games.there are some games earlier but there are recreations not original radio broadcasts.

baseball on radio did not exist until 1920 and none survive before 1934

run a search for the Miley Collection and you'll be able to purchase tapes and cds of old games

Listening to the older games is something I really enjoy as well. The earliest game I have is the October 2, 1934 game between the Yanks and Tigers. Also an interesting interleague game between the Cubs and White Sox that was played on 10/03/36. I guess they decided to play each other for the 'Chicago Championship' since neither made the WS. I also have a couple of games from both the 1948 and 1949 Series, and even a college football game between Notre Dame and Army played in 1946.

I agree that I'd rather listen than watch, as well. They didn't call it the theater of the mind for nothing.

Hello Polo '57:
I am new to the site. I think it's fantastic. I love the history of the PG as well. To answer your question about what game I would want to watch, it would have to be the '51 Thomson/Branca game. Wow!
I wonder if anyone has home video footage from that game. Maybe they brought a camera into the stadium. I noticed on another posting that there was a few still shots of video footage from a game at the PG in the mid 50s. I believe they were sitting in the left field bleachers....section 33.
Hope all is well!

Is there 2 1/2 minutes of home video from THAT game, or from the world series against the yankees?

My great uncle was at game 7 of the 1960 WS, I would love to see or even hear that game.

I think just about any game would be fun to hear - or see. I wouldn't mind just a regular season game between two bad ballclubs. If there were any from a really old park - like Baker Bowl - that would be interesting. Hmmm, I guess the other old parks from that era were all gone by the time radio came into being for public broadcast in 1920 - next to go after Baker Bowl would have been Braves Field, then Ebbets and the Polo Grounds.

Hearing teams like the Browns would also have been fun, since they dont' exist anymroe.l Wonder what the announcers said when Eddie Gaedel was sent up to the plate.

You can order old games on CD (original radio broadcasts) from John Miley at vendiamo.com We have over 100 available now, from 1934-1971, and we're adding more every week. You can email me for the complete list: mark@vendiamo.com Please put "Miley Collection" in the subject line.

To answer the questions above regarding the 1956 World series Game 5 (Larsen's perfect game), the owner of the film is/was Doak Ewing, raresportsfilms.com. He has all but the first inning or two, and he does a beautiful job restoring old film. I do not know if it is available for purchase, but there have been some showings of it. And, again I'm not sure, but he may have sold it to MLB.

I don't know all the details, but one of the editing jobs done on it inserted interviews and so on between the innings, which really breaks up the presentation, I've been told.

Anyway, sorry to be so unclear about it but I can assure everyone, it does exist and it's been restored by the best in the business.

I saw the film of Larsen's perfect game on TV recently. Don Larsen watched it in the studio and was interviewed. He said it was the first time he had ever watched his perfect game. He mentioned that near the end of the game he realized he was pitching a no-hitter, but didn't realize he was also working on a perfect game too.

After the last out Larsen walks off the mound and is heading for the dugout when Yogi intercepts him and jumps on him.

So how many games do you have?

I've been able to listen to a lot of classics like the Mickey Owen game, the Shot Heard Round the World, the 49 pennant clincher, World Series games from the 1930s and many games from the 50s-60s but there are plenty of games I still wish were available. It would be nice to listen to game 7 of the 1946 World Series, the entire 1947 World Series, the 48 AL playoff, the final game of the 56 World Series, more games from the M&M boys chase of Ruth in 1961 and the 64 NL and 67 AL pennant races. It also would be nice to hear more from announcers like Russ Hodges, Arch McDonald, Waite Hoyt, Dizzy Dean, By Saam, and Jimmy Dudley. There is very few broadcasts before the 80s from the Braves, Astros, Padres, Brewers, Twins, Rangers, and A's announcers. Before the 70s, most games available are from the Mets, Yankees, and Dodgers announcers along with a few from the White Sox, Cardinals, Angels, Giants, and Tigers. Almost nothing from the rest of the AL and NL teams.

I have some of those tames...

But I'd love to add some more to my collection--

What do you have, and maybe we can swap...I have mp3s of games from 1936-2011, with the latter ones taped off the call or, in the case of Vin Scully and the Dodger games, the TV audio feed (because listening to Scully for 9+ innings on the full TV call beats just 3 on the radio adn then over to the Dodgers' radio team...)
