1980 Baseball Awesomeness

26 July 2010

Intro to Expos/Phillies game, late September 1980 on ABC, with Keith Jackson and Don Drysdale on the mic, and the legendary hair of Rowland Office and Bake McBride doing battle.

Tremendous.

    Thanks for the trip down memory lane. I would love to see some footage of the Expos/Phillies 1981 NLDS. Rogers beat Carlton twice that series.

    P.S. Speier in a golf shirt?

    Was the Vet the Grandaddy of all cookie-cutters? Man, I love 80s baseball but it’s shocking how awful that stadium looks now..

    Love the beard, KJ!
