Play Ball! Keep Playing! Faster! Move It! Go!

I talked a little bit about the length of playoff baseball games this morning, and now here comes the Score to basically prove me right. I think they get a little too hung up on the amount of foul balls vs. balls in play, (watching a pitcher and hitter get into a battle of skills …

Yankees And Tigers On The Radio…In 1934

This is something else. A complete radio broadcast of the September 20th, 1934 game between the New York Yankees and the Detroit Tigers. This is the oldest full radio broadcast of a regular season baseball game known to exist (the 1934 All-Star Game is the only surviving full game broadcast that is older than this). …

You Have 1 Million Channels, Not 1

I should know the answer to this, but I don’t. TSN has five channels. Sportsnet has six. I know that part of their purpose is the ability to shift programming to different time zones or broadcast things only to specific regions, but much of the time they aren’t doing that. In fact, there are plenty …

You Miss 100% Of The Shots You Don’t Take

Parent seeks reimbursement for equipment after OMHA’s vaccine policy benches sons Fuck this guy. On second thought, no. Do not fuck this guy under any circumstances. Getting that close will probably get you COVID courtesy of him or his unvaccinated family. Seriously, how did this douche get a story on the news? He should be …

The Jays Have Real Radio Broadcasts Again

Sportsnet restores Ben Wagner as radio play-by-play voice of Blue Jays, for now Thank god. Dan Shulman did his best, but anyone with a clue knew that this simulcasting garbage was never going to work especially with him not calling every game. Buck is what he is, but what he clearly isn’t is a radio …

You Sure Minimized The Crap Out Of That Travel, All Right

Dammit Rogers, you shitheads. You almost had me sympathizing with you for a second there. That stuff about minimizing travel in the name of safety this baseball season, I got it. I didn’t fully trust or believe you, but I did understand. But when it comes to minimizing, you sure went above and beyond, you …

The Blue Jays Are World Series Champions!

Game six again! Another radio call I didn’t hear at the time because I was watching it on TV with the family. The only bit I remember is Tom Cheek saying “The Blue Jays are World Series champions!”. That line was played over and over again after the fact. Not as often as the legendary …

The Blue Jays Are Going To The 1992 World Series!

Some more classic Blue Jays audio by way of Toronto Mike. This time, it’s the last few minutes of the game that clinched the Jays the 1992 ALCS and sent them off to the World Series, which they would eventually win in six games over the Atlanta Braves. This audio is also from a game …

The Blue Jays Win The East! In 1985!

I’m not sure where this tape came from, but Toronto Mike has dug up and posted audio from October 5th, 1985. That’s the day that the Toronto Blue Jays clinched their first ever AL East division title with a 5-1 win over the New York Yankees. This is the radio call of the bottom of …
