LOST SPORTS CLASSICS Vol. 2 (Approx. 55 min.)
The most commercial and the least commercial side of sports, along with some miscellaneous highlights: St. Louis Cardinals vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers, and a pitching duel between St. Louis's Larry Craig and Los Angeles' Roger Craig; Roger Maris lends his name to Papermate's three-sizes of pens and their special grips (he prefers the husky); an account of postwar Little League Baseball and its introduction to the town of Roslyn, Long Island, and its organization, fund-raising, the role of women (mostly as scorekeepers), and how the boys get their try-outs and their rankings, with an endorsement from the Yankees' Whitey Ford; a 1950's Universal-International newsreel present a football game between Seattle and Milwaukee; and a bloody 12-round fight between Kobayashi and Amaya, with a surprising amount of blood and obvious pain for both participants. The international Little League championships. Joe DiMaggio and Jack Barry appear on Lionel Trains clubhouse, talking sports and trains. And we get a glimpse of the 1930's animated Aesop's Fables cartoon "The Ballgame." Casey Stengel, Jack Dempsey, and Betty Grable each appear separately in early 1970's Tabby catfood commercials; and Jerry Coleman, Bill Mazerowski, Richie Ashburn, Marty Marion, Bob Turley, Curt Simmons, and Hank Bauer all plug Gillette razors.
