I don't know the title of this film. It appears to be missing something from the very beginning, including the title card. But still there are cool shots of Rusty Staub, Mudcat Grant, Gene Mauch, and others among the original Expos. Also highlights from the Expos' first-ever game against the Mets and from their first home game at quaint Jarry Park.
Apparently this is pretty rare, because I cannot find anything about it on the Internet. Panasonic, the up-and-coming electronics company of the day, sponsors this look at the art of bullpen work and some of the pre-eminent firemen of the late '60s and early '70s (Tug McGraw, Ron Perranoski, Hoyt Wilhelm, Ted Abernathy, et al). Also some great footage of some classic ballparks, including a beautiful shot looking down the leftfield line at Crosley Field's outfield terrace. Enjoy.
Ernie Harwell and Paul Carey bring you the play-by-play from Fenway Park. Game picks up in the top of the 3rd inning.
Here is a string of reels of especial interest to Braves fans. The first reel is of game highlights of the Braves final home game in Milwaukee, September 22, 1965 against the Los Angeles Dodgers, which includes a nostalgic vignette featuring Earl Gillespie, the Braves' play-by-play announcer for the first 10 seasons they were in Suds City. The second is an introduction of the Braves' franchise and players to Atlanta fans, which also includes footage of key players on opposing National League teams and highlights of an exhibition series the Braves played at Atlanta Fulton County Stadium against the Detroit Tigers. The video concludes with a recap of Hammerin' Hank Aaron's record-breaking 715th career home run, slammed on the evening of April 8, 1974 off of lefty Al Downing of the LA Dodgers.
