Remember how they found that old kinescope of Game seven of the 1960 World Series in Bing Crosby’s basement last year? Well, tonight it will be rebroadcast in its entirety on MLB Network. It will be the first time the public has seen the thing since it first aired. It comes on at 8PM Eastern.
While I sorta wish they’d just run the game on a stand-alone basis — and how cool would the vintage commercials be? — there will be extra features added. Bob Costas will host, and players who participated in the game including Bobby Richardson, Dick Groat, Bill Virdon, Vern Law, Roy Face and Hal Smith will be interviewed.
Now, if only my cable company carried MLB Newtwork … Grrr …
