1909 World Series Scorecard Before electric scoreboards came along, fans who wanted to follow a baseball game closely kept personal scorecards. (Some still do, God bless them!) This skill, of course, required an attention span which is something of a dying trait these days. This scorecard is from the 1909 World Series between the Detroit Tigers and Pittsburgh Pirates. Notice how Pittsburgh is spelled without the "h." This is not a misprint. At the time the U.S. Post Office wanted to standardize the spellings all American cities that ended with "burgh" to make them "burg." Everyone complied for a while, but after a couple of decades many cities slowly reverted back to the spelling as it appeared on their charters. Oh, yeah: Pittsburgh won the 1909 World Series in seven games.

Hal Roach Interviewed at Age 100 Here's something fun: In January 1992, seven days after his 100th birthday, famous film producer Hal Roach was interviewed on The Tonight Show by Jay Leno. Roach began making a name for himself with silent comedies in the 1920s. Among other achievements, Roach was responsible for creating the Our Gang series of short comedies and for brilliantly pairing Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy together. Roach's mind was still very sharp for a centenarian and his stories were amusing. He died ten months later.

2002 MLB All-Star Game Controversial Tie While the other three major North American team sports' All-Star Games have become farces, baseball's mid-summer classic still retains its luster for being competitive and hard-fought, and unchanged in its format since it was first played in 1933. Since day one it's always been the American League versus the National League. At the 2002 ASG in Milwaukee, however, the game suffered a huge public-relations blow because it was stopped after 11 innings deadlocked at 7-7, when both teams ran out of pitchers. This development was the result of a change in ASG philosophy that strongly encouraged managers to use everyone on the bench. The days of Willie Mays playing in the ASG from start to finish (which he did 11 times) were gone. Instead, managers liberally moved players in and out of the lineup so that it resembled something akin to a softball game at a church picnic where, to avoid hurt feelings, everyone participates. Commissioner Bud Selig made the decision to halt the game in consultation with the umpiring crew and both managers. The crowd of more than 41,000 spectators was outraged that the game ended without a winner. Furthermore, no MVP was selected because of the inconclusive outcome--a strange decision did not make a lot of sense. The following year, as a way to make the contest more meaningful, it was decided that whichever league won the ASG would get home field advantage for the World Series that autumn. That policy, which had its supporters and detractors, was kept until 2016.

Gonzales-Pasarell 1969 Wimbledon Marathon Before the advent of tiebreakers in tennis, every set needed to be played until one player had won six games with at least a two-game advantage. In the first round of the 1969 Wimbledon tourney, Pancho Gonzales and former NCAA champ Charlie Pasarell needed more than five hours and 112 games to decide a winner in a match spread over two days (June 25 and 26). Here is five minutes of terrific video from that match with original BBC commentary by Dan Maskell. After dropping the first set 22-24, the 41-year-old Gonzales, who was hot-tempered, was irked when play wasn't suspended due to impending darkness. He basically tanked the second set. Nevertheless, Gonzales rallied to win in five sets the next day. The final score was 22-24, 1-6, 16-14, 6-3, 11-9. The 112 games played in a single men's match stood as a Wimbledon record for 41 years. (Note that the electric scoreboard could not handle set scores in the twenties. It shows Pasarell winning the opening set 4-2 instead of 24-22.)

Forgotten TV Show - Cades County During the 1971-72 TV season, Glenn Ford was offered a series by CBS. Originally CBS preferred Ford do a sitcom, but then realized Ford was more associated with Hollywood westerns than any other genre. Thus Ford starred in the hour-long series called Cade's County. In it, Ford played Sam Cade, the sheriff of Madrid County somewhere in the American southwest. Edgar Buchanan (of Petticoat Junction fame) played senior deputy J.J. Jackson. The show's plots were a combination of police mysteries and western adventures. Cade's County ran on Sundays at 9 p.m. opposite Bonanza on NBC and ABC's Sunday Night Movie. It fared poorly in the ratings and, after 24 episodes, was not renewed for a second season. Here's the opening montage. (The theme song was composed by Henry Mancini.)

Failed TV Series - East Side West Side In 1963 CBS introduced a bold new TV series that was way ahead of its time: East Side, West Side. It starred George C. Scott as Neil Brock, a New York City social worker whose job put him in the forefront with the seedy aspects of the big city. Topics included alcoholism, drug abuse, prostitution, race relations, and even statutory rape. Because of its controversial nature, some CBS affiliates chose not to air the hour-long show which was slotted at 10 p.m. on Mondays--right after The Andy Griffith Show. Predictably, East Side, West Side also had trouble getting sponsors. According to the reference book Total Television, "TV audiences in 1963 just weren't ready for a hard-hitting series focusing on social problems, especially one in which the problems remained unsolved at the hour's end." Only 26 episodes were made. By January 1964 CBS decided to ax East Side, West Side but aired the show occasionally until September of that year. Here is the opening montage for one episode.
