Caught Mantle vs. Mays with Mantle winning 9 to 8. Mantle vs. Banks with Mantle winning 5 to 3. Three match is Mantle vs. Jackie Jensen...Jensen plays for the Boston Red soxs. Interesting TV! Best regards, David
I caught these last night. I watch part of Mays vs Mantle. I hope they replay it again kinda hard to watch it while unpacking. But I think Ive seen alot of these, if Im not mistaken ESPN use to air them almost dailey back in the 90's before they had more channels than any other network on tv. I always thought it would be fun if they'd do these in the off season with players from today. Maybe the MLB Network could set something up. Just dont do it in the studio....lol
I watched it some as a kid but it was not a very popular show. Even baseball fans pssed on it. TV in 1960 was still new in a lot of rural america. 1960 was in the golden age of TV so why watch players take batting practice.
