Batter Up!

It was 100 years ago today that the first major league baseball game was broadcast on the radio.

 KDKA ( Pittsburgh, PA) announcer Harold Arlin described the action between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Philadelphia Phillies at Forbes Field.

That Friday afternoon,  Pirates won the game 8-5 and a new American pastime was born . . . . listening to baseball games on the radio.

    This brings back a lot of good memories. I remember spending a lot of nights lying in bed listening to a ball game. It takes talent to paint a live picture in others’ minds. We lived in North Dakota at the time, but I could usually pick up KMOX and the voice of Jack Buck from St. Louis.
