1969 World Series Game 5 On SNY Tonight

May 8, 2020

Tonight, I am looking forward to watching game 5 of the 1969 World Series, in which the New York Mets completed their “miracle” title, with a victory over the Baltimore Orioles.

The game will be shown on SNY from 7:30 to 10:30.

In games 3 and 4 shown the last two nights, I enjoyed the excellent coverage by NBC, with its preeminent director Harry Coyle.

Curt Gowdy, Lindsey Nelson and roving reporter Tony Kubek all did a superb job.

Just before pinch runner Rod Gaspar actually scored to win game 4, recently retired United States Chief Justice, Earl Warren predicted that he (Gaspar) would score.

Gaspar was on second base with none out. (Earl) Warren like N.L. President Warren Giles, also interviewed by Kubek, was not impartial.

He told Kubek, he was rooting for the Mets.
