  • "All Star ’76: Champions of Pride" video

    I stumbled across this very cool video of the 1976 All-Star game narrated by Joe Garagiola.

    Strikeouts are boring! Besides that, they're fascist. Throw some ground balls - it's more democratic.-Crash Davis

    For the Ruth fans starting at 4:00 there a Ruth section. They had several of the '76 All-Stars hold one of Ruth's bats (I believe the bat he used to hit the first All-Star Game HR). Pretty much all the players were amazed. Pretty much the same comment was that Ruth's bat was too long and heavy for them.

      They didn't like eating a dozen hot dogs and drinking a half rack of beer just before the game, either.

        I thought it was funny how Seaver kidded around with The President about him visiting Garvey first.

        "I have the ultimate respect for Whitesox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Redsox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)
