Reds on MLB this afternoon


Recommended Posts

I love on Browning's game the sound is Mary and Joe. Great memories!

 

I know not all Reds games were on TV at the time but quite a few were. I’m assuming that game wasn’t on TV anywhere. Clearly a single shot camera up top behind the plate.

I don't know for sure, but I would almost guarantee this game wasn't televised live in Cincinnati. Likely not televised live in LA either, though a better chance. MLB owners were reluctant tollow the televising of all games, fearing the damage it would do to them in attendance. This game could have been televised live in LA and blacked out in Cincy. It may not have been telecast at all.

 

It was a mid September, Friday night game and the Reds were all but finished in terms of playoffs. Cincinnati, Friday night, mid September, Reds are playing out the season. Guess what everyone was talking about, football and Friday night HS football, that night.

I know the Cubs had WGN, and the Braves had TBS, but during the 80's you couldn't just turn on a game except for those two. I think that slowly changed baseball in a good way.
