1961 Yankees Notes Part 1

May 30, 2020

In the upcoming days, there will be more posts and notes on the great 1961 World Series winning, New York Yankees.

Today I cite former great Yankees pitcher, Waite Hoyt was on the first game (if not the entire Series broadcast) and he is a link between the great 1927 and 1961 Yankees.

Hoyt was a broadcaster for the ’61 National League Pennant winning, Cincinnati Reds.



Waite Hoyt, among other things a vaudevillian in his career, pictured above cited the fact he pitched in 6 World Series for the Yankees and that “it was good to be back.” 

He did so, introducing game 1, before “turning things over,” to Bob Wolff.
