This one goes out to our community member Steve Austin. I realize there hasn't been a lot of variation team wise the last month, and a lot of Mets. Back in earlier years, a lot less broadcasts of various teams, and most of the saved broadcasts youll find from then are Mets, Yankees, or Dodgers. Also, all the recent broadcasts have been provided by Dan H. so even if you don't like the Mets, please thank him. I try to still buy games to post but it's a ton of money for games and the Patreon I tried didn't raise much. So really, I understand some people might complain, but we got what we got, there are 400+ broadcasts on this channel now and I really want to thank Dan, Karl, everyone who has helped. Long live baseball on the radio. Also for more post 1973 broadcasts check our sister channel run by a friend https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_Ls8X77w4E7T7mKNigFGFg

OK, so this is not a Television Detroit related item, but its a gem nonetheless.
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.
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.

Here's a rare full game broadcast of legendary Detroit Tigers play-by-play men Ernie Harwell and George Kell, teamed together to bring fans the last game of the 1963 season. This was Kell's last game as a radio play-by-play announcer for the Tigers. George took a year off from the mic and then returned in 1965 for about 30 years as the lead guy from the Tigers' TV booth. Ernie went on from here to give Tigers' fans 30+ more years of folksy and professional radio play-by-play work that earned him a place in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. What these two fine gentlemen taught a couple of generations of Tigers fans not only about baseball but also about how to talk to people long will be appreciated.
