Did you see where the pitcher was warming up around the 2:00 mark?
Foul territory behind home plate must have been HUGE back then!
Who's that "ringleader" like clown at about 2:30 on the pitchers mound? He's throwing bats, and windmill pitching in tails. Was there a pre-game vaudeville act warming up the crowd at Yankee games?
Just love vintage color baseball footage. Could watch hours of it.
