See link for scorecard, Game 7! Sandy Koufax (born "Sanford Braun") at the Met, Oct. 14, 1965 at Sports Junkie Score Card
The Video below was mined from a Korean site. It dishes a batter-by-batter capsule review of The Great Koufax' memorable 1-0 shutout win to clinch the series for L.A. The creator evidently wished to highlight every out recorded as a result of Koufax' strikeouts or fielders' putouts.
[NOTE: video can be a slow download].
Scroll to two minute mark, see behind home plate view of Koufax-Earl Battey confrontation. Being both obsessive AND compulsive, I hit the stop/pause buttons countless times to get a visual of standing in against Koufax. The impression? Lefty was a dominating, fast worker, great control, who would keep you off balance with a mere two pitches. He'd just embarass batters by dispatching them quickly. Classic pitching.
Other Notable Things To Watch For:
*Koufax adjusting his hat after seemingly every pitch
*Watch how he wasn't accurately controlling his curveball in the early going - abandons it in favor of fastball almost exclusively later (after 1-1:30 video mark)
*No "working the count," in 1960's baseball, waiting for mistake pitches, getting walks - batters were up there to swing. Of course, pitchers like Carlton, Pedro Martinez, Koufax hand you your ass if you try that
*Putouts at first, first basemen turn to sling the ball to the catcher, backing up first - doesn't happen today
*Tony Oliva's bat throwing - he does it at least two times during the game
*On closeups of Koufax using the behind the plate camera, you can see how he hides the ball, and how difficult it could be to pick up his motion. Advantageous, especially the way he attacked hitters
No, you don't see the possible game-turning Versalles smash that 3B Jim Gilliam converted into a force out of Frank Quilici in the 5th. Nor do you see Killebrew's ground single bashed to left in the 9th. So, it's not perfectly complete. But you do get an idea of the quick pace and economy with which "The Left Arm of God" (see SI 1999 story) worked on that Thursday afternoon, October 14, 1965 (box score), even with the film edits. BONUS: you also get to hear broadcast greats Vin Scully (Dodgers) and Ray Scott (Twins) give the play-by-play for NBC (more You Tube audio of the two broadcasting greats from that day).
