Earlier we posted some video of the great Agee catch during Game 3 of the 1969 World Series. With Game 3 of the less than thrilling 2007 WS tonight, lets look backwards again.
The Bobster sent along these gems:
Donn Clendenon was the MVP of the 1969 World Series, but he didn't even begin the season with the Mets. They acquired him from Montreal in June, and his big bat was vital in giving the Mets some offensive punch. Here he slams his second homer of the World Series, the victim being Baltimore's Mike Cuellar. The final score of this game was 2-1, giving the Mets a 2-1 lead in games.
By the way, notice how fast the game moved back then. Four pitches were delivered in just 57 seconds! Today the batter takes a little stroll around home plate after every pitch, and the pitcher takes a little stroll around the mound. No wonder games always take 3 hours these days!
True, Bobster. I don’t think the networks go 57 seconds without some kind of commercial, either.
