I’ve mentioned in the past that my 7-year old son likes to listen to the Yankees game (or any game if the Yankees aren’t playing) on the radio as he falls asleep each night.
And, he really struggles with nodding out when there’s no game. He just can’t unwind and relax without his baseball on the radio.
So, I was thinking “I’m going to have a problem after this post-season” and then it dawned on me to get him some old games on CD that he can play on his Clock/Radio/CD player. And, I’ve now picked him up the following from the Miley Collection -
- 10/02/49 – NEW YORK (AL) 5 Boston 3 – Yankees win battle for AL pennant (Curt Gowdy & Mel Allen)
- 10/02/60 – YANKEES 8 Red Sox 7 – Dale Long 2-run HR in B9 gives NY a record 15 wins in a row to end season (Phil Rizzuto & Red Barber)
- 05/24/70 – Yankees 8 INDIANS 7 (11 innings) – Game 2 is game of oddities that features 9 HRs (Bob Gamere, Frank Messer & Phil Rizzuto)
- 08/29/72 – YANKEES 7 Rangers 6 (11) – Bobby Murcer dramatically hits for the cycle (Bill White, Frank Messer & Phil Rizzuto)
- 09/06/73 – YANKEES 8 Brewers 6 – Mike Hegan’s 3-run homer gives Yankees a comeback win (Bill White, Frank Messer & Phil Rizzuto)
- 07/26/77 – YANKEES 5 Orioles 4 (10) – Dramatic homers by Johnson in 9th & Jackson in 10th spark Yanks to win (Messer, White & Rizzuto)
- 10/09/77 – Yankees 5 ROYALS 3 – Yanks score 3 in 9th to win ALCS in 5 games (Frank Messer, Bill White & Phil Rizzuto)
- 06/17/78 – YANKEES 4 Angels 0 – Ron Guidry strikes out Yankee record 18 (Fran Healy, Bill White, Frank Messer & Phil Rizzuto)
That’s a whole lot of Scooter to listen too. I just may have to borrow these from my son when he’s not listening to them!
