There was a Yankees-White Sox game on there from 1979, but I don't think they are posted with MLB's permission and I suspect they will be pulled shortly.

Just watched enough of Game 3 of the '83 ALCS to get pissed off again. Thanks :angry::tongue: Yeah, Flanagan was throwing a Kittle. He missed him once and then hit him on the 3-2 fastball, aiming for his knees.

There is a 1981 Sox-Orioles full game. A full game with Harry and Jimmy for all the youngins that have only heard clips of them. A real treat.

That Mark Fidrych video sure was something else. I've never seen anyone give such a raw interview like him either. He did the interview with no shoes on. I wish there was more players like him now. It's also kinda cool that Bob Euecker gave the interview too.

Speaking of Fidrych, in my 50+ years of following baseball I have never seen anything like what Fidrych did in 76. Look at the crowds he drew in the summer of 76, home and away. This was on a tiger team that wasnt in the hunt all year. It was truly amazing. This was not a guy chasing a cherished baseball record either.

Yeah they were even talking about the crowds in the interview. I wish there was a Harry Carey interview with him now. I've always heard stories and watched short clips on him but that game was probably the most entertaining game I ever saw. I can understand now why so many people wanted to see him pitch. I don't think he was some phony trying to sell to a fanbase either, he seemed like a genuine kinda guy who didn't know how entertaining he was.

Awesome find.

If you see something you really want, grab it quick via http://www.keepvid.com/ before MLB yanks them.

I think this guy set up another account in case the first one gets taken down. The other account includes a 1979 game with the Yankees at Old Comiskey, with Harry and Jimmy doing commentary. Unbelievable find:

The 1979 game is Thurman Munson's last game before he died in a plane crash. It wasn't televised live in New York, but the Yankees got the tape of the White Sox WSNS telecast and showed it in New York a few days later. (Coincidentally, it's also Don Kessinger's last game as Six player/manager. He resigned the next day and was replaced by a young unknown minor league manager named Tony LaRussa.)

Very cool. Harry ripping on the Sox for bunting in the first inning at 7:30. Ahead of his time.

Just discovered these games this past month, though they've apparently been uploaded for longer than they've been recognized. Recently watched the end of the '05 World Series just to feel good about our boys again. Someday again. Someday.

I was watching that earlier and what I thought was interesting was at some point Harry said that the broadcast could not be retransmitted without "the express written permission of the Chicago American League ball club," not MLB.

It wasn't that long ago that changed, I remember hearing that watching games growing up ~20 years ago.

Watching this '81 game between the Angels and Sox is like going back in a time machine. This was the first Sox team I really followed. That lineup was stacked, at least through the first seven. I'm skipping around, but I landed on the top of the 5th where the Sox batted around (Joe McConnell, btw, doing solo commentary). It is an amazing difference to what we see now. Pitching changes aren't followed by mandatory commercial breaks or sponsored. This was my favorite Sox uniform combination for that time period, I think they wore the dark tops and white pants exclusively on the road. Chet Lemon and Harold Baines hitting back to back in the order is a great memory. Squires in the 2-hole seemed like a good fit too.

I've been skipping around these videos all weekend. Check out the video above (Sox vs. Orioles from 1981) and skip to about 2 hr 36 min when Harry is doing the "10th inning show" and interviews Reinsdorf and Einhorn in the booth about the 1981 season. Einhorn has some prophetic comments about the Cubs and says the Sox are not competing against them. Pretty surreal to watch those three guys together in the booth.

Yea Harry was really kissin their butts back then. What interested me was even back then, them saying how much they were involved, talking to Hemond and larussa almost daily. No matter how old the cat gets, those spots never change.

:thumbsup:

I never remembered pre-Cubs Harry so it's amazing to here him as a coherent, thinking person.
