MLB – 1920 To 1990 – Inside Baseball – World Series Legends – With Barry Tompkins + Tim McCarver

This video clip from HBO’s Inside Baseball is another “nugget of gold” in our treasure chest of vintage memories here at ImaSportsphile….as co-hosts Barry Tompkins and Tim McCarver take a look at legendary figures from World Series past…..when they start with Yanks Babe Ruth hitting 3 HR’s in two different World Series wins…..then come highlights of Giants Willie Mays and The Catch….which is followed by an equally heroic catches by Mets OF Tommy Agee and OF Ron Swoboda, in the same World Series game….which is followed by highlights of Indians C Ernie Lombardi in what is known as The Snooze, when Yanks Joe Dimaggio came home from 2nd base on a pass ball. 

If those historic events aren’t enough to get you to watch this video herewith….then it is our opinion that you are not a Sportsphile….so, how about highlights of the Oakland A’s pulling a “gotcha” on Reds C Johnny Bench….or Bob Gibson’s 17 strikeouts for the St Louis Cardinals…..or Yanks Reggie Jackson tying Babe Ruth with 3 homeruns in one World Series Game, plus 5 in the Series. 

This is great stuff….and we at ImaSportsphile are “tickled pink” to have this footage in our treasure chest of vintage memories.
