Pretty cool stuff. The scene in NY w/ the game simulator surprised me, considering the series was between ChiWS and Cincy.

It looks like the film is running faster than it ought. Perhaps it is 24fps running at 30fps to match the video?

Great they were able to upload to YouTube in 1919. Upload speeds had to be really slow back then.

Way cool. I looked real hard, but didn't see anyone cheating.
Notice how each team's players wore their uniforms the same way - and no bling.
I wonder who influenced those changes? Hmmm ...

Amazing what keeps surfacing. Wasn't a couple of years ago that a film of the 1960(?) series was found among Bing Crosby's possessions?

(Probably a filmed off a tv. I think he was going to miss it, and had a lackey do it for him.)

The real problem was transcribing the ones and zeroes into dots and dashes for the Western Union operator.

This film would be viewed in a movie theater before the main attraction.

Radio was in its infancy then, so this is how a lot of people saw the news of the day, long after it occurred. Newspapers ruled the day.

It is like looking back into time 95 years.

Today, instead of Pathe News, the news is pathetic.

Possibly at 3:42 mark, where Cicotte has no concern regarding cutoff throw after what appears to be Reuther’s 2-RBI triple, Rath’s RBI double, and Daubert’s RBI single (with Daubert going to second on the throw).

Why the simulator when they could have watched it on TV?

Not sure if that was a serious question or not, but I think the first televised WS was probably in the late 1940’s.

No skin off my apple. I posted a youtube link. You posted a cbs story w/ a link to the youtube link. I just wanted other posters to realize that there was a little more discussion on another thread. That’s all.

Your treatment of me and anything PSU related had nothing to do w/ my response to your initial thread.

Notice the clouds of smoke over the fans. Shows how bad smoking is as almost everybody alive at that time is now dead. /sarcasm.

One last thing. The reason I didn’t link the cbs article (just the youtube link) is because I simply don’t want to give cbs the hits.

The entire organization needs an enema, and the sports department has become a bunch of basement bloggers/local radio idiots who spread lies and untruths w/ absolutely no repercussions. I detest these people and all those who blindly follow them.

I refuse to even go to their websites (including espn, fox, and others) to check a baseball score. I’ll find it somewhere else.

Understood and I apologize. Over-reacting to the not-pinged 'scoutmaster dancing on grave' post last night. The story was a story and I couldn't post anything from The Tennessean. FR rules.

We should have a long off-thread conversation sometime about PSU prosecutors.

You can freep mail me anytime re PSU. I’ll happily and honestly share what I know. And I know a lot. Not as much as JZ, Blehar, or certainly the true insiders like Lubrano, but lets just say I’ve followed it rather closely.

There were all sorts of things were recorded to film (or transcription audio records) for members of the US military who were stationed abroad. A little bit of home.

I’ve seen lost episodes of the Tonight Show turn up this way as well (from the 1960s).

I should have known that since I'm a fan of OTR, and a lot of shows epis survived because of transcription for then-AFRS.

The Tonight Show epis I'd dearly like to see (NBC recorded over them...), or at least listen to, are the ones of Bill Dana's "Jose Jimenez" appearances during the Apollo 11 mission.

There were also people home taping audio from television and radio.

I did it myself in the 1970s and 80s (no VCR).

I saw one time someone who had a trading/selling list of around 10,000 hours of programming (maybe in one of the record collecting or movie paper collection newspapers). What I recall seeing on that list was pretty amazing (I never got the full list nor did I ever try to get any recordings from him).

Professional sports frown on home recording/sharing of their events.
