Just great to see this again.

Regarding Chet at 3rd base, this is from my interview with him:

ML: As I understand it you were a third baseman in the As minor league system yet by 1976, your first full year with the Sox, you had been made into a center fielder. How did that all come about, and is it true that then Sox manager Paul Richards is the guy who suggested the change?

CL: "Paul may have been a part of it but Ill tell you when it first came up about me becoming an outfielder. In late 1975 when I was with the Sox, I was at 3rd base and a ground ball was hit towards the middle. I started running and cut in front of the shortstop and actually wound up around George Orta at second base! (laughing) The very next day I was on the top step of the dugout, it was early in the day since Id always be one of the first guys to show up. Chuck Tanner, the Sox manager, came up, put his arm around my shoulder and said, I can remember this like it was yesterday, son I want you to start taking one hundred fly balls a day because if you stay an infielder youre gonna kill somebody! (laughing)"

Do you think Roland Hemonds will respond, I wonder if he remembers Harry Carey putting him on the spot like that.

Loved the footage of the Chicago Cougars playing the Birmingham Bulls in the channel 44 promo.

This made my day, alright. Great memories. Mike Squires and Lamar the Slammer both in the minors at first base. Wish we had their equals there today.

Many thanks, WSI. The video quality was better than I used to get from TV 44.

Yes, I caught that reference about a couple of 1B's coming up in the minors, too.
I remember that car commercial with "... your car runs like a scalded toad", too.
And Brewski, I'm with you on the channel 44 reception, sometimes the old family TV was just unwatchable on the UHF.

I had never seen video of the Yankees when they played at Shea Stadium. Strange sight to say the least.

Awesome--and a shot of a sweet AMC Pacer in the showroom, to boot. I had always remembered J.C. Martin as being excruciating to listen to--but I didn't know what excruciating was until I sat through years of Ed Farmer....

White Sox 1:

Roland and I talk and e-mail each other regularly. He'll get back to me on this. No I don't think he'd remember that specific interview with Harry.

At the beginning, Al Lerner is a WSNS sportscaster.

I know this isn't the one you're looking for, but here's the open that WSNS used from 1978 - 1980, along with some interesting insider TV information about how it was produced.

Great find. Did anyone notice the commercial for TV College? Ahead of its time a precursor to Phoenix and all the other on line schools of the digital age.
