Re: AUDIO: Frank Robinson's last at bat as a Red and Waite Hoyt's last radio broadcast
Funny, but I remember listening to this game.
My folks had an old Magnavox TV with a phonograph/radio in the base. The TV went on the blink, so my dad put the radio in the basement. I was building models in the basement and had this game on.
I distinctly remember Hoyt saying "blah blah blah ... that is the end of the season and the Reds finish 4th" and then "and that is also the end of my radio career". Which surprised me because I didn't follow things as closely then and didn't know he was retiring.
They were rather spare in the word usage in those days.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall
All you have to do is call...
