Some Baseball ’67 And Other Notes

February 19, 2022

A 1967 game at L.A. the year after the Dodgers great success of the 1960’s ended, and the great Bob Murphy is imparting scores and information regarding earlier games this Friday July night.

The top 2 teams in the penultimate year of a one of two spots race, (one National League and one American League), for the World Series/post-season, stay 2 games apart as the eventual world champion Cardinals lead the (I would think) surprising Cubs, in the 59th of what would be 107 completed seasons sans a crown.

Dick Hughes on his way to a stellar (16-6) mark won vs the Braves before a big Atlanta crowd in the team’s second season there. Orlando Cepeda hit 2 homers for St. Loo and two years later was on the Braves. In ’67 a title for Orlando as cited, in ’68 a pennant, in ’69 a “div” title in the first year of such a possibility.

In the Cubs’ win that night, Ferguson Jenkins was the winning pitcher and Billy Williams homered. Cepeda, Jenkins and Billy Williams are deserving members of The Baseball Hall of Fame.
