A quick peek at the game of the week, summer, 1961

Growing up, Saturday afternoon, it was always NBC’s game of the week.

I have vivid memories of hot summer afternoons, the living room windows open, sunshine, fresh air, birds singing, the neighborhood quiet. Watching the game.

Here, it’s Saturday afternoon, 22 July, 1961. The Giants are visiting the Reds at Crosley Field.

Pee Wee Reese and ‘ol Dizzy Dean are doing the commentary.

Let’s play ball.
