It's funny you guys are talking about this. A coworker and I were discussing Al Michaels' career with the Reds the other day and he doesn't remember the Bench HR call in 1972 and I have searched up and down the internet a thousand times over and cannot find a clip of that call. I figured it would be a simple Youtube search but I can't find it anywhere. It's driving me nuts, if anyone knows where I might find it, I would be very greatful...
