Blasts From the Past, Chapter 1
Periodically throughout the season (and hopefully beyond) I'm planning on taking a look back at the history of the most fabled franchise via videos not often seen by most people.
What better way to kick it off than with this 8mm "home movie" filmed during Game 6 of the 1958 World Series between the Yankees and Braves, by a fan who was lucky enough to get a ticket and a press pass. The quality is pretty good considering the era (no sound, of course) and the access level is fantastic. Of course, these days the guy would probably have been arrested, his camera confiscated, and Bud Selig would be suing him for copyright infrigement.
