Tim Cowlishaw of The Dallas Morning News provides a write-up of things he noticed watching game seven of the 1960 World Series — the one found in Bing Crosby’s archives earlier this year when formerly it was thought that no copy existed. I don’t currently have access to the video, but after reading that article, I hope to watch it soon.
“Games moved so much faster then. Hitters didn’t step out of the box and adjust batting gloves. They didn’t wear batting gloves. There were no strikeouts in the entire 10-9 game which, despite all the scoring and numerous pitching changes, took less than 2:40 to play.”
Any YFSF readers get to see it yet?
