That was some great footage. Interesting to see the players sitting on a bench with no roof.

The overhead shot at the 4:10 mark was interesting. Does anyone know what was in the portion of the 1st base grandstand that extended past the main gate, and when it was torn down? That's the first time I've ever seen it.

And it was good to see McCuddy's again.

That is Crosley field in Cincinnatti
