OK, so this is not a Television Detroit related item, but its a gem nonetheless.
Ernie Harwell and Paul Carey do the play-by-play for WJR 760, the Great Voice of the Great Lakes. The first13 innings of a 14-inning affair, eventually won by Detroit, 4-2.
I do not own the copyright of this radio broadcast. I wanted to share this rare recording that I had on cassette tapes in my closet. I included approximately 350 photos - most have been seldom seen - using Adobe Premiere Elements 8.1. . This is the American League Championship series between the Oakland Athletics A's and the Detroit Tigers.
Quite an underrated ALCS, even with the 3 game sweep.
Ernie Harwell and Paul Carey's last game together as Tigers broadcasters. Also, the last game played at Baltimore's Memorial Stadium. Plenty of hoopla, tributes, and reminiscences.
Ernie Harwell and Paul Carey with the play-by-play. Detroit's Milt Wilcox vs. the Twins' Geoff Zahn on the mound. Settle back and enjoy a lovely summer afternoon in Bloomington, Minnesota, long ago.
