BASEBALL: Shea Stadium, October 1973

A classic trip down memory lane:

Via our old friend Art Martone. Sadly, Lindsey Nelson's jacket in this one is quite subdued. Note that in the joint interview with Seaver in the second clip, Catfish is unusually blunt in criticizing Charlie Finley on live television (Reggie too, in the first clip), and both Catfish and Seaver are remarkably cliche-free in discussing their status as undisputed staff aces (I would have expected a few more nods to the idea that it's not such a bad thing for the teams to start Koosman or Matlack or Blue or Holtzman in a big game).
