I'm not by a TV, but according to the TV listings, Comcast Sports Net is currently airing the 7/31/91 in which Robin Ventura hit a walk-off grand slam.

It must be a condensed, abbreviated version because the program guide only lists it running for :30 minutes.

Game was 3 hours, 31 minutes (http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/CHA/CHA199107310.shtml).

I was at the game, so I never got see the telecast.

The Direct TV guide out here lists it for 30 minutes then starting at 2:30 it says "to be announced."

???

Not that it matters, MLB in their infinite wisdom blacks it out everywhere other than Chicago, even though the game is 20 years old.

Wow, that's silly.

And Dump, Comcast has it listed 3-6:30. It started at 3, I think.

It's amazing how skinny the players were back then. That was before they had conditioning coaches who taught weight training.

Here in the bottom of the 8th, Hawk just said we have 11 LOBs. Some things never change.

Wow, you can actually focus on the game here too instead of being distracted by an overweight guy wearing a neon yellow M&Ms coat right behind homeplate.

Wow, Frank just murdered that pitch.

Brian26
12-24-2011, 06:54 PM
For historical purposes, that's the exact moment that Hawk coined the "Big Hurt" name.

Absolutely. The Ventura homer means so much more when you see it within the context of the game leading up to it.

I just hope Fisk doesn't pop out to 2nd base on a 1-1 pitch.

The shot I'll always remember after the home run is that of the little baby in the Sox cap and Oshkosh overalls. He is probably about 22 years old today.

Awesome to watch that just now. I was at that game with my dad and my brother plus my dad's friend. That was my summer between first and second grade. Myself, my dad, and my brother just watched that home run just now for the first time ever on tv. We all agreed that, that is the best Sox game we have ever been to. Great memories! Gotta love looking back at that game and seeing the blast from the past players as well as the apparel that was sported by everyone in the crowd.

Observations:

New Comiskey Park had one thing going for it--it was new.

I must have forgot Kittle played for the Sox after 1990. His career ended two weeks after this game.

Stirrups rule, and they should come back.

How did we watch baseball without knowing the score, inning, count, and men on base at all times?

I was at this game because at the last minute a friend of mine who was/is a die-hard Cub fan called me with an extra her boyfriend had. Until I attended Game II of the World Series, this was my most memorable moment in my WSI profile.

The electricity in the crowd when Robin came up was amazing. It was already announced he was Player of the Month for July. When he got ahold of the pitch, it was like a movie. Everything was in slow motion and there was no noise until I saw the ball disappear in the seats. Then all hell broke loose in the stands. You'd think we just won the World Series.

It would be wild if he were a WSI poster now.

Agreed. But, it was strange tonight seeing someone in the current (post 1990) Sox uniforms other than Konerko wearing #14.

I was listening to that game in Tennessee with a wire antenna hung out the window for just barely listenable reception. Wish I'd seen this yesterday in time to catch the rebroadcast. Oh well, Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to all!

I was just driving down Oliver Road in Monroe, my show had ended a few minutes before listening to the game on the radio via WMAQ and I had to stop and pull over to the side after Ventura won the game. I remember pounding on the steering wheel I was so happy.

Those type moments don't come along very often.

Ditto. That was a long game, especially in the last few innings when Melido Perez was throwing HR balls and base-runners were being allowed in bunches by both teams.

But the end result was worth it.:bandance:

Easily one of my favorite Sox games of all time. I was not there but was watching at home with family and we were going so nuts at the end you would have thought we just won the World Series. :D:

This game is one of THE GREATEST memories I have of being a Sox fan as a kid.

My dad, my brother and I were all jumping, screaming, and running all over the house after Robin hit that ball.

Big Hurt carrying Robin on his shoulder is still something my brother and I talk about once in a while.

Another game that was my favorite (which I was at with my dad, brother, and uncle) was in 1994 when Robin and Julio Franco went back-to-back twice in the same game. Don't remember the date though.

I agree. That policy is just incredibly stupid. What logical reason can they use to justify blacking out old games shown in the offseason.

I wish I knew who to speak with regarding this policy.
