Jimmy Mod: The Prettiest Flower In The Pond (The Famous Jimmy Mod), Monday, 27 February 2006 03:50 (fifteen years ago) link

the humor behind mark p's link is accentuated by the commentators mentioning that when interviewed before the game, Ishikawa said that if a gaijin player ever got angry at him, he would take off running and hide behind the second baseman (which is exactly what he did after the beaming).

Great thread idea -- I can't believe we didn't think of it earlier.

ABC footage from 1989 World Series Game 2 pregame show:

I hadn't seen any of this before -- at the time, I hadn't turned on the game yet.

There aren't as many baseball videos as I was hoping for.

Furcal's unassisted triple play:

NoTimeBeforeTime (Barry Bruner), Monday, 27 February 2006 05:45 (fifteen years ago) link

Was Mr. Baseball accurate when it claimed that when Japanese pitchers unintentionally hit a player, they doff their caps?

As for the Ventura thing, I've heard that players -- hitters in particular -- were thankful that he charged Ryan because they were convinced that Ryan was throwing at them with impunity.

I would pay good money for footage of the riot-gear NY-BOS game and the one where Pedro flips Don Zimmer (or maybe they're the same, I can't remember).

Game 3 actually. Yeah I was working. I didn't see it either.

dude, zimmer getting flipped for real is one of the more entertaining moments in recent sports history.

for some reason, he and lawrence tierney are inextricably linked in my head.

1992 NLCS: Barry Bonds vs. Sid Bream

Steve Shasta (Steve Shasta), Monday, 20 March 2006 00:14 (fifteen years ago) link

And that's the greatest baseball moment of all time.

ample parking (Garrett Martin), Monday, 20 March 2006 00:59 (fifteen years ago) link

I forgot just how close that play was.

It was also a tough play for Bonds -- it looked like he was shading Cabrera toward the line and had to run laterally to get to the ball, which explains why he couldn't get much on the throw.

NoTimeBeforeTime (Barry Bruner), Monday, 20 March 2006 01:08 (fifteen years ago) link

I remembered that 1989 Earthquake series happening differently. It was the shot of Al Michaels in the booth, talking about the game, and then the screen just went blank. Then an ABC logo. Then some commercials. Then an episode of "Roseanne". It wasn't until I tuned in the radio that I heard Bob Costas say that an earthquake had struck the San Francisco area.

But I didn't see or hear Michaels again until the network news started covering it. I certainly don't remember that "I don't even know if we're on the air" audio sequence.

Anyway, I'll tell you which clip I've been looking for: George Brett storming out of the dug-out after the umpire called him for having pinetar on his bat. If my someone ever asks me, "What does raw emotional ANGER look like?", I'll show him that scene.

(Rozema often tells the story of how Gibson came up to him when he was being put on a stetcher, teary-eyed, guaranteeing that the team would win the game for him. What did Gibson do? Won the game with a home run.)

First game of the '74 Series, in its entirety. MLB is fiendish about copyright, so I wouldn't expect this to be up for long.

"This telecast presented by authority of Major League Baseball, intended solely for the private, non-commercial use of our audience.

Heard Curt Gowdy say that so many times, suddenly very poignant--welcome to 2013, Curt.

The thing that always catches me short watching old games is how fast they clip along. I don't know why they're all rushing--the entire country outside is falling apart.
