BASEBALL: Flashbacks

Two things caught my eye in the flashbacks shown in the pregame coverage of Game 7. First, how unbelievably hokey the uniforms, the ballpark, and everything else looked in the coverage of the 1979 series. If you'd told me this was minor league footage, I might have believed you. Two, like an unexpected apparition, the scene of the 1985 "I-70 Series" between the Royals and Cardinals featured the teams meeting before the game with Missouri's then-governor . . . John Ashcroft.
