At a Glance

Baseball games are fleeting, a series of moments that pass us by as they give way to the next. Before baseball became ubiquitous on television, radio did the most to capture the excitement and drama of great moments in baseball history. In this hour, we will hear some of baseball’s most famous calls, as delivered by the legends of broadcasting including Vin Scully, Mel Allen, Russ Hodges, Bob Prince and more. Subjects include Bobby Thomson’s “Shot Heard ‘Round the World,” Hank Aaron surpassing Babe Ruth’s home run record, Sandy Koufax’s perfect game and the Mets finally winning their first World Series!
