She'd always put in there "And this game is underway" or "And this one belongs to the reds" or "this is the ole' left-hander rounding third and heading for home" (she's a lefty). Just hearing Marty's voice brings back all those memories of sitting by the radio and keeping score with my mom.
That sounds like the kind I had and was talking about in my post. I think it had 50 games in it. Really would like to find mine. I know all the games in them would have been from the BRM days.
