      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.
      :radio Game 7 of the '91 World Series (Smoltz v. Morris)

        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.

            old baseball games on audio

            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

              old baseball games

              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

                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.

                    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.

                            Does anyone have any radio or tv recordings of games from the 1800s? That would be cool. What? Why is everyone looking at me like I'm an idiot?

                              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.
