1968 Detroit Tigers Game 5 introductions

Since today's my birthday I figure I'll write about my favorite team, the 1968 Detroit Tigers.

I found this terrific NBC opening 15 minuets of Game 5 of the 1968 World Series.

Hall of Famer and former Tigers 1935 World Series hero, Goose Goslin, throws out the first pitch, just after the 12 min. mark, to Tigers catcher Bill Freehan.

Freehan, my baseball hero,is introduced around the 8 min. mark.

It's a great video of old Tiger Stadium, with George Kell, the former Tigers announcer, takes you around the old ball park, including the famous right field over hang.

The Tigers introductions start at the 7 min. mark.

Play Ball!!
