Radio Broadcast – 6/4/57, Dodgers vs Cubs, Ebbets Field

As part of my ongoing efforts to bring classic baseball moments to the masses, lol, I have been creating videos of classic radio broadcasts and uploading them to YouTube. Time-consuming, so there will only be a few here and there, but hope to get a bunch up soon enough.

From the YT page details:

Original full radio broadcast from the Dodgers radio network, originally preserved by WOKO, Albany, NY. Tuesday night, June 4, 1957, the Dodgers return from a 9 game PA trip to come home to face the Cubs, with a young Sandy Koufax taking the mound. After the intro by Jerry Doggett, an also young Vin Scully (starts at 6:43) calls the first 3 innings, with some middle-innings work later; Doggett does the last 6 innings, along with some between-innings work also. Al Helfert also contributes between innings, and does the quick post-game at the end. Dodgers prevailed, 7-5, as Sandy got the win and Clem Labine got the save. Campanella hits a 2-run double off the scoreboard in the first, and also there were 4 home runs: Snider in the 3rd, Hodges in the 5th, Speake of the Cubs in the 6th and Ernie Banks in the 8th. Also, Joe Pignatano makes his major league debut (discussion starting at 1:07:14) after Campy is hit by a pitch in the 3rd inning. The sounds of the fans, vendors and Ebbets announcer Tex Rickards (first heard at 4:10) are heard throughout the game. A classic time capsule of the Dodgers’ last season in Brooklyn, enjoy!

Line score:

CHC 0 0 0 – 0 0 2 – 0 3 0 – 5 6 1
BRO 3 0 3 – 0 1 0 – 0 0 x – 7 7 0

  1. Great hearing the BROOKLYN Dodgers games with Tex in the background announcing the line-ups. I wish I could hear the Symphony playing Three Blind Mice when the umpires enter the field! Where’s Hilda Chester?
