Hey thanks, Dean.
Yup; I remember the Vancouver Mounties well.
Incidentally, mary Ellen is right. My own opinion is that the strike zone
should be computerized. Oh well.

Vancouver baseball broadcast
Long-time Toronto sportscaster Bill Stephenson died not long ago. He
started out in Vancouver in the 50's. I used to love to listen to him when
I could on CKWX. Here is a priceless 1958 broadcast between the Pacific
Coast League Vancouver Mounties and the Sacramento Solons from Capilano
Stadium, with Stevenson broadcasting and the very young Jim Robson reading
commercials for the team's one sponsor. The only sad thing about this is
that there isn't more of it, but it's a delight as is. You pick up fun
tidbits of the difference in life and baseball between then and now.
