How about that! Mel Allen highlights on CD
Stocking stuffer alert: Pat Hughes, radio voice of the Cubs, has released the latest in his series of CDs that chronicle the careers of famous baseball play-by-play men, in this case the Yankees’ Mel Allen.
There is plenty of cool audio here for fans of a certain age to enjoy, including Allen calling the 1938 World Series before he ever had worked a regular-season major league game.
Another historical gem is a mistake of Sterling-ian proportions in calling Yogi Berra’s home run in Game 7 of the 1960 Series, which Allen initially called foul because rightfielder Roberto Clemente did not react to the ball.
The CD sells for $14.95 at BaseballVoices.com.
