    Wasn't it Claude Sullivan? I think Ed Kennedy and Frank McCormick did TV.

    BTW, thanks for the memory blast, Sava.

    Growing up in Massachusetts, my friends and I would play some sort of baseball game every day of the summer. Usually it was whiffle ball, with a pitch-back as a backstop/strike zone. We'd fight over who'd be the Red Sox so we had to be another team, a National League team. Bob was always the Braves, Ted the Giants, Jack the Dodgers, and I was the Reds. We'd have to go through the order batting, for example, lefty for Pinson, righty for Robinson, lefty for Coleman, righty for Johnson, lefty for Edwards, righty for Cardenas, either for Rose, etc. It was great fun that lasted virtually all day everyday, and I got to really love the Reds as my adopted other team.

    In late July of 1965, my family moved to Cincinnati. Before school started, I didn't know a soul, so I was really lonely. I couldn't wait until the game would start and I could listen to Waite Hoyt and Claude Sullivan. At first, I really didn't like them as much as Curt Gowdy, Ned Martin, Mel Parnell, or Ken Coleman, but I eventually warmed to their styles. In fact, I remember listening to that last game. If the Reds had won, they would have tied Pittsburgh (who'd already won) for third place. I remember wishing the Giants would consider they'd already locked up second place and they should just let the Reds win.

    I searched for them on Limewire. I've gotten quite a few now.
