1939 World Series footage in COLOR!
« Topic Start: November 29, 2016, 08:19:49 PM »
Found this short COLOR video of the 1939 World Series.   At the 2:25 mark behind the Yankee starting pitcher Monte Pearson who is warming up is "The Clown Prince of Baseball" ex-Washington Senator Al Schacht on the mound.  As far as I know this is the oldest color footage of any World Series game

Thank you, Ed! I wonder if someone can teach Giolito either version of the "true windup"? I like the windmill version that Schacht uses.
