1965 Twins Win 1st Pennant (Video) - 9th Inning


Our friends at the Pavek Museum of Broadcasting have done it again, posting this beautiful, crisp video from the pennant clinching game of September 26, 1965 (BBRef.) at Washington's old D.C. Stadium, later renamed R.F.K. Stadium, the first home of the new Washington Nationals


I personally find this a joy, which is a little like saying the fox enjoys the occasional foray into the hen house. Twins / Green Bay Packers announcing legend Ray Scott is at center stage here, along with announcer Frank Buetel (in booth to call the ninth inning)  and the many greats of the 1965 Twins: Harmon Killebrew, Tony Oliva, Jim Kaat, Bob Allison, Cesar Tovar, Camilo Pascual, Rich Rollins, Earl Battey, Mudcat Grant, Jim Perry etc*. Let yourself go, and see 'em as they were!

Hey, this is John Bonnes of Twins Daily. I just stumbled across this blog and it's very fun. I'd love to feature some of these stories on our site so others can find it too. Shoot me an email if you like and we can talk about the best way to do that. John at Bonnes dott com

Anyway to get pavek museum or anyone else to put that video up again? Disappointing it was not up for long.

Unfortunate that the suits and trolls at MLB caught wind of this excellent video. It was super! I'm waiting patiently for a 3rd party to repost it. When that happens, I'll make like Kent Hrbek rushing the postgame food spread and and do a video screen copy before the suits take it away once again.
