Kaat had won 7 games in Sept and should have pitched on Oct. 1 the last day of the regular season. The video pointed out the 7 victories. He only pitched 2 innings this game but needed an extra day of rest.
On-topic, I grew up in Indianapolis, so I didn't have a direct rooting interest at the time, and I found the hitless wonder White Sox an interesting story, also the expansion team Angels being in the race until near the end, but ultimately I was one of those lemon-juice pouring young jerks who rooted for the BoSox that year.
1 / yeah, I'm trolling. Trolling for people to ban! :)
Thanks for the youtube link. It was great viewing and it lead me to game 7 of the 1952 World Series -which was even better. In fact , I thought the camera work on the 52 game was better than the 67 one. They even had split screen. So 52 World Series Game 7 is highly recommended. You'll see a 20 year old Mick, Jackie, Scooter, Yogi, Pee Wee, Gil Hodges, Campenelia, Billy, Casey, Duke and the list goes on. At Ebbets field no less with Red Barber and Mel Allen calling the action from the catbird's seat. (don't have link but just google and you'll find it.) Think I'll tell my elected representatives that viewing should be part of all school children's core curriculum.
