For some reason, the nice people at Fancred have asked me to join their constellation of members. Among other things I like about them is that their site isn't overrun with hipsters and sarcastic twits. Encouraging you to check it out!

Classic Minnesota Twins Game Of The Week: Ray Scott Announcing Game One of 1965 WS - October 6th, Third Inning Highlight!



From 1962 Twins Scorecard: Herb Carneal's first season at the mic for the Twins.

THE CLASSIC of 1960's Twins classics!  The Twins jump all over the Dodgers and starter Don Drysdale in Game Number One, scoring 6 runs in the third inning.  Drysdale is pitching only because Sandy Koufax elected to sit out the game as an observance of Yom Kippur, the holiest of Jewish Holy Days.


Twins radio announcer Ray Scott is tabbed to work the national telecast for NBC with the Dodgers Vin Scully.  He's superb, especially when he has to fill air during the pitching break after Drysdale is removed!  Love the way he plugs the upcoming football games coming up on the network!



Sound quality isn't so hot for first 45 seconds, like the production quality.  But, it's a very entertaining 4 plus minutes, if I must say so myself!  Lovin' those boater hats and old-timey organ fills by the Metropolitan Stadium organist. Enjoy!

May Your Taters Fly Far!
Go Twins! Beat The Yankees!
Twinkler Out!

What a great clip! I loved the old NBC logo, and I liked how they used the team announcers. Scott's delivery is excellent
