Just a “wee” bit of baseball, (Pee Wee Reese included) from the ’67 World Series.

January 28, 2021

Having scored a run in the first and two in the second, the score is (3-0) St. Louis at home, in #3/’67 World Series-(the great Lou Brock tripled and scored bottom 1) and it is the superb broadcaster, long time Boston baseball and Cleveland Browns football, Ken Coleman, doing (the) play by play.

Harold “Pee Wee” Reese, is heard just a “wee bit” and later in the game, will do play by play.

Boston’s Elston Howard, so long a Yankees player and later a coach,  in his 10th World Series in 13 seasons (’55-’67), really helped the young Boston pitchers, Mr. Coleman informs.

He hits one by the ’67 N.L. MVP and second time World Series opponent, Orlando Cepeda, inside the line.

The Cards’ right fielder gets to the ball quickly, it is a single.

It seems he did that before in W.S. play.

Yes, Roger Maris did do even better before and helped save the ’62 World Series, an incredible 20th title in forty seasons, for the vaunted Yankees.

1961 “flashes,” Maris hit 61 home runs, Elston Howard hit .348
