I'm trying to figure out who the batter is.  My guess is this is a video from the 1968 World Series -- the Cards are obviously home team.  The uniform, hard to make out in the black and white and slightly out of focus video, could very well be a Tiger road uniform from 1968.  If so, this would be Bill Freehan, who wore No. 11 for the Tigers in those days. 

I've tried to do that as well and I keep seein' New York on the front of the jersey.   Yet, it makes sense to be Detroit.   They are similar    ..   NEW YORK

Being old is interesting.   :P
