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.
A look at Mgr. Harry Walker and the 1966 Pittsburgh Pirates in Spring Training, featuring numerous star players, including Roberto Clemente. Also, a profile of Willie Stargell in about 1972 by legendary Pirates' broadcaster Bob Prince.
Highlights of the 1958 baseball all-star game played at Memorial Stadium in Baltimore.
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.
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.
