What I Watched Wednesday: 1965 World Series Game 7
With sports on an indefinite hiatus, I have taken to YouTube to check out one game every day. On Wednesday, I watched Game Seven of the 1965 World Series between the Twins and Dodgers.
Sandy Koufax vs Jim Kaat at the Met? Yes please! Black and white film, grainy picture, low-quality graphics... it was all good!
I really enjoyed Vin Scully's call of the game. As a young broadcaster he really did a great job of letting the crowd tell the story with long pauses and breaks. Of course I may be biased, as Scully is far and away my favorite broadcaster of all time.
The game itself was a good one, with Koufax in control throughout the contest, allowing just three hits (two singles and a Frank Quilici double). Kaat, pitching on short rest, could only manage to get through three innings before yielding to the bullpen.
This game offers an awesome opportunity to see some Twins greats in action, including Kaat, Harmon Killebrew, Tony Oliva, Bob Allison and Jim Perry.
